About Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy
Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy (formerly Milwaukee Collegiate Academy ) is a public, charter high school delivering a college-focused education to high school students for 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 seven years in a row.
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.
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.
