Milwaukee Collegiate Academy (formerly CEO Leadership Academy) has announced that it will relocate to a modern and larger facility for the the 2013-14 school year. The new school building is located at 4030 N. 29th Street in Milwaukee. The CEO Leadership Academy is a City of Milwaukee charter high school that focuses on preparing students in grades 9 – 12 for entry into and success in college.
The new facility provides over 57,000 square feet of learning space and includes large, common areas that will be dedicated to the school’s new blended learning initiative. The facility includes a computer learning center able to accommodate up to 90 students, large classrooms and other amenities.
The new facility is located in a highly visible location at 29th and Capitol Drive with easy access to public transportation, secure entry and a more modern learning environment for students along with opportunities for expansion.
“We believe that this is a great opportunity to accelerate our efforts to become a premier high school in Milwaukee,” said Rashida Evans, principal of Milwaukee Collegiate Academy (formerly CEO Leadership Academy). “This is a vibrant neighborhood and we are excited for the possibilities this new building brings to our students and their families.”
The school is currently renovating the facility to meet its instructional needs with work scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2013-14 school year. It is also investing in the technology, software and systems required to help support student learning in a new blended learning environment to be introduced for 2013-14.
The school has been located at 3222 W. Brown Street since 2008 and will vacate their current location by July 1, 2013.
