100% college acceptances seven years in a row!
Our class of 2019 has earned $2.5 million in scholarships.

New Name. Same Core Values.


Milwaukee Collegiate Academy is proud to announce our name change to Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy in time for the 2019-20 academic year! The change honors our founder’s legacy and far-reaching impact on the lives of our students.

This is an exciting time for Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy or HFCA! While the name will change, our goal remains the same: Prepare scholars to get to and through college.

This commitment has led to a 100% college acceptance rate among graduating scholars for the past seven years in a row. Additionally, the Class of 2019 earned, $2.5 million in scholarships, and more than 125 college credits through their coursework.

The Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy team will be gradually transitioning our online presence including a transitioned web address (howardfullerca.org), new email addresses (sample@howardfullerca.org) and updated social media pages.

We will be following up with you on additional information as we get closer to the school year. Our phone number will remain (414) 873-4014. Please call with any questions.

Thank you for your continued support!

Every dollar you give to support Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy has an impact that extends far beyond our school walls.

As a City of Milwaukee public charter high school, state funding supports only 80% of our operating expenses when compared to a traditional Wisconsin public school. We rely on individual donations, recurring gifts, corporate matching gifts, in-kind donations, and grants to close this funding gap. Your 100% tax-deductible gift will help us enrich and sustain our public college preparatory high school program and fulfill our mission.
