Program Description

Milwaukee Public Schools, in collaboration with local, state, and national partners, operates two community-based College Access Centers within the Greater Milwaukee area -- one in the Midtown area of Milwaukee's north side and the other in the south side region of Milwaukee.

These centers provide students and families with direct services easily accessible via public transportation and within close proximity to resources families typically frequent, such as grocery stores and other retail ventures. These community-based locations support the college access outreach efforts of Milwaukee Public Schools and engage families in the support and reinforcement of college attendance for Milwaukee students in centers focused on college attainment.
