The Fresh Coast Classic College and Resource Fair gives high school students an opportunity to explore historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other colleges around the country. Students will also get a chance to attend breakout sessions throughout the day. Breakout session topics include (but are not limited to) information on how to obtain scholarship money, FAFSA completion, and NCAA athletic eligibility at the college level.

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 Corporation and Affiliates to help the people of greater Milwaukee harness the power of higher education to change their lives for the better.
