Request a Shadow Day at MCA

MCA is now enrolling for the 2017-18 school year. Students in grades 8th through 11th grade who are interested in finding out more about Milwaukee Collegiate Academy are invited to share a day in the life one of our scholars. The visiting students attend classes, participate activities and enjoy lunch with one of our Student Ambassadors.

To get a first-hand look at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy, we encourage prospective students to spend a day with us. During a Shadow Day, visiting students are paired with a MCA scholar who will serve as the visitor’s personal guide for the day.

Students must pre-register for a Shadow Day at least five days before the intended visiting day. On the day of the visit, students must check in at the Main Office 7:45 a.m. and turn in the Shadow Day Permission Slip. In turn, students will receive a guest pass for the day as well as be partnered with an MCA Student Ambassador, who will serve as his/her guide throughout the day. Shadow Days conclude at 12:45 p.m. in the Main Office.

  • Arrive at MCA no later than 7:45 a.m. and report to the main office
  • A complete breakfast and lunch will be provided
  • Your MCA experience will end at 1 p.m. unless previous arrangements have been made
