Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy features an instructional approach centered on personalized learning, a culture that empowers students and teachers to succeed with technology. We believe that every student — regardless of ZIP code or background — deserves opportunities to use technology to create, design, build, explore, and collaborate.

Every day we hear stories about how not enough African American high school students are studying science, technology, and math. We committed to providing scholars with the technology and skill they will need to be successful.

We will continue to make sure we provide devices to all families who need them so that our scholars can access and be successful with Virtual Learning. For the 2020-21 school year you will receive a Chromebook for your use.

The school Chromebook is managed using Google Apps for Education. Along with a login for the device, Google Apps provides online learning tools for writing, calculating, presenting, drawing and many other applications. Your child may use these tools for a variety of purposes in classroom assignments.

Google Apps can also be accessed with other devices or computers with an Internet connection. In addition to Google Apps, many teachers will use various personalized and online learning systems that improve learning through better communication, collaboration, and increased access to curriculum resources.

It is the responsibility of the student and family to care for Chromebook and charger and ensure that it is retained in a safe environment. You must adhere to the school’s Acceptable Use Policy. Scholars will learn how to be good digital citizens when working with online learning platforms and when using social media.

Digital Citizenship

Milwaukee Collegiate Academy (MCA) recognizes that access to technology in school gives students, parents, families and teachers greater opportunities to learn, engage, communicate, and develop skills that will prepare them for work, life, and citizenship. We are committed to helping students develop 21st-century technology and communication skills. To that end, MCA’s Social Media Policy applies to students, staff and families.

The Internet is a powerful amplifier that can be used to spread positivity or negativity. Scholars can take the high road by applying the concept of “treat others as you would like to be treated” to their actions online, creating positive impact for others and disempowering bullying behavior.

Set an Example

  • Use the power of the Internet to spread positivity.
  • Stop the spread of harmful or untrue messages by not passing them on to others.
  • Respect others’ differences.

Take Action

  • Block mean-spirited or inappropriate behavior online.
  • Make an effort to provide support to those being bullied.
  • Encourage kids to speak up against and report online bullying.
