100% College Acceptance Rate since 2012

Members of the graduating Class of 2023 have been accepted into over 250 colleges and universities.

Character, Achievement, College

This year, 23% of our students earned college credit through early college opportunities with our partners at UWM, MATC, and Gateway.

Our Mission

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy’s mission is to nurture scholars capable of transforming their world by sending them to and through college.

A transformational moment

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy is in a growth phase, with scholars enrolling from across the city to join our college-prep, personalized learning environment. Our growing student population has demonstrated that the goal of 450 scholars is achievable however our current facility is inadequate for our programming including our Early College Program and our technology, education, health care, and business Career Pathways

who we are

Founded in 2004, Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy is a tuition-free, non-profit, public charter high school open to  all students in the City of Milwaukee. We serve over 320 scholars, most of whom reside on the north side of Milwaukee, receive free and reduced lunch, and will be the first in their families to attend college when they attend. 

Our mission is to send our scholars to and through college and we engage them in a vibrant culture of mentoring, challenging academics, and early college experiences. From day one every scholar is engaged in college and career exploration that culminates in apprenticeships and early workplace opportunities. This year, 23% of eligible students earned college credit through dual enrollment opportunities at our partner schools — UWM, MATC, WCTC, Gateway and Herzing. 

Our college-going culture gets results: 100% of our graduates have been accepted into college since 2012. We do more than prepare our scholars for higher education. We believe in and support our scholars’ college aspirations and, through our familial environment, nurture within them the tools each needs to persist through any obstacles.
