“I graduated from MCA knowing that I have the ability and essential things that I need to be the successful African American leader that I want to be. I could not have done it without them.”

—Amanda Paige, MCA Class of 2014; Howard University


“The phrase ‘to and through college’ resonates in my mind and continues to be my driving force.”

—Mark Ellison, MCA Class of 2010; Bethune-Cookman University

Closing the Funding Gap

As a City of Milwaukee public charter high school, state funding supports only 80% of MCA’s operating expenses when compared to a traditional Wisconsin public school. MCA relies 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.
