Commit to
the Future

Learning at Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy empowers students by coaching scholars to understand their lives as learners and leaders.

College, career & life ready.

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy does more than prepare scholars for higher education and careers. We provide them with the skills necessary to affect change in society and help transform their local, national and global communities.

Character

Relationships that I form throughout my life matter in my college and career journey.
Each scholar has an adult mentor who is invested in the student's success. Mentor and Mentee work closely to nurture the development of the scholars’ inner life making college access and academic achievement possible.

Achievement

I am capable of intellectual challenge and academic success.

Our scholars are developed as empowered and eager learners capable of acquiring knowledge in a variety of disciplines and settings.

College

I can see myself going to and through college.
Our scholars are keenly aware of all of the post-secondary opportunities available to them and have aspirations for college acceptance, persistence and college graduation.

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 450 scholars is achievable however our current facility is inadequate for our programming including our Early College Program and our technology, health care, and business Career Pathways.

College acceptance rate since 2012

Over 300 scholars with growing enrollment

Over 60 scholars have earned early college credit since the pilot began in 2018.

%

Over 90% of our scholars qualify for free and reduced lunch; 98% are Black; and 18% of scholars have a diagnosed learning disability.

The case for a new school building

In 2020, the Board of Directors voted to build a new school at 2228 N. Vel R. Phillips Avenue, located just off Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. This area was chosen because it is in the midst of a nearly $100 million revitalization, its central location, and connection to current and future business and community partners.  The Medical College of Wisconsin and Greater Milwaukee Foundation are relocating offices in the area which allows greater access for our programming. A capital campaign has begun to fund the construction, and capital, operational and programmatic needs to meet enrollment of up to 500 scholars. An updated facility improves scholars’ access to new partnerships with businesses, community agencies, and nonprofit organizations.

Our Mission

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy’s mission is to nurture scholars capable of transforming their world by sending them to and through college.

#Character

Transforming their world

Service to the community is integrated into our culture. During COVID, a team of scholars, staff and alumni sponsored a car wash and used the proceeds to show their support local first responders and community groups by partnering with two Black-owned businesses at the Sherman Phoenix.

#Achievement

Launching College Careers from Day One

The school’s Early College scholars are making huge gains in both the academic and soft skills necessary for college persistence.

#College

To and Through College

Every year, our scholars have a special opportunity to learn from HFCA graduates on Alumni Day. This school tradition is a chance for current scholars to learn from the experiences of former scholars about their journey that has taken them to and through college.

Our Vision

Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy’s vision is to produce responsible leaders through academic mastery, community focused education and the fostering of lifelong learning in any environment.

Our Desired State

scholars enrolled in our high performing high school program

%

of scholars will graduate and are accepted by a 2-year or 4-year college or university

%

Over 60% of alumni graduate from a 4-year or complete a professional certificate within six years of graduation

”For me this about empowering poor parents to be able to have the same options for their children as those of us who have money for our children.”
