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 north side region of Milwaukee (currently relocating) 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 that 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.
Operation of the College Access Centers is funded by the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation to help the people of greater Milwaukee harness the power of higher education to change their lives for the better.
