In July, this 10th-grade scholar travelled to UW-Platteville for a weeklong college experience. She got a chance to preview a few college courses including Chemistry, Criminal Justice, and Writing Enrichment.

Greetings HFCA families and scholars,

We hope you are enjoying your summer! We are beginning to prepare for the upcoming school year and we are very excited for the prospect of a new building in the Bronzeville neighborhood. As you think about the start of school, please find information on saving your seat, uniform expectations, school calendar, health and safety, and student fees.

Save Your Seat

First things first, because we have a large number of freshmen seeking seats at HFCA it is important that all families complete the Confirm My Enrollment form by clicking the button below. If you are an existing family who plans to transfer to a different school, please let us know as quickly as possible so that we can prepare transcripts in time for the start of school by calling our office at (414) 873-4014. Finally, If you are new or returning and have recently moved, it is important you confirm your new address using the Confirm My Enrollment form below.

Health and Safety

As we begin planning for the upcoming school year, we need your input on our plan to know what will be comfortable for your child. Our past Health and Safety Plan emphasized mandatory twice-weekly testing and 100% masking. COVID vaccinations are not required but are strongly encouraged for scholars attending our school. The new BA5 variant is highly transmissible. Milwaukee’s Health Commissioner recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Please follow the link below to complete our Health Feeback Survey.

COVID Testing

If you are not yet registered for testing with our partner NOVIR, please do so using the link below and our organization code 4030. Covid testing is available to all students and their family members on Tuesday and Thursdays (call for times until school starts). To be tested you simply need to register using the link below. The test result can be used with employers as proof of positive/negative results.

HFCA organization code: 4030
