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.
Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy was founded in 2004 by eight notable pastors and Dr. Howard Fuller. We value students’ learning strengths and differences, identities, and voices with the mission of sending scholars to and through college. In 2019, Milwaukee Collegiate Academy was renamed to honor student advocate and Board Chair Emeritus Dr. Howard Fuller.
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 500 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
