About Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy (HFCA) is a public, charter high school delivering a college-focused education to high school students for over 15 years.

Our school sets ambitious goals for student achievement and we believe that all scholars are capable of academic success. Our graduates are consistently accepted to four-year colleges and universities at a rate of 100% percent over the last eight years.

We do more than prepare our scholars for higher education. We provide them with the skills necessary to effect change in society and help transform their local, national and global communities.

Our Story

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 Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy remained unchanged during the private to charter transition and continues to focus on getting students prepared to go “to and through college”.
