Request a Shadow Day at MCA
MCA is now enrolling for the 2019-20 school year. Students in grades 8th through 11th grade who are interested in finding out more about Milwaukee Collegiate Academy are invited to share a day in the life one of our scholars. The visiting students attend classes, learn how MCA personalizes learning for its scholars, participate in activities and enjoy lunch with one of our Student Ambassadors.
To get a first-hand look at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy, we encourage prospective students to spend a day with us. During a Shadow Day, visiting students are paired with a MCA scholar who will serve as the visitor’s personal guide for the day.
Students must pre-register for a Shadow Day at least five days before the intended visiting day. On the day of the visit, students must check in at the Main Office 7:45 a.m. and turn in the Shadow Day Permission Slip. In turn, students will receive a guest pass for the day as well as be partnered with an MCA Student Ambassador, who will serve as his/her guide throughout the day. Shadow Days conclude at 12:45 p.m. in the Main Office.
