Our Story

Milwaukee Collegiate Academy (formerly CEO Leadership Academy) is a City of Milwaukee charter high school located on the north side of Milwaukee that focuses on preparing students in grades 9 – 12 for entry into and success in college. Located at 4030 N. 29th Street, the CEO Leadership Academy provides educational services for approximately 150 students from the surrounding neighborhood.

The school first opened in 2003 as a private Christian high school known as the Clergy for Educational Options (CEO) Leadership Academy, which ceased to operate in the Summer of 2011. In the Autumn of 2011, the Commitment, Excellence, & Opportunity (CEO) Leadership Academy opened its doors. In 2013, we changed our name and location. We are now Milwaukee Collegiate Academy.

The Mission of Milwaukee Collegiate Academy remained unchanged during the private to charter transition and continues to focus on  getting students prepared to go “to and through college”. This line of the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy Mission reflects the school’s core value, which is that all students are capable of academic achievement and educational success past the secondary level regardless of their race or socioeconomic level.
