Description of Agency/Activities: Milwaukee College Prep is an elementary and middle charter public school. There is an unrelenting focus on academic achievement and character development. They embrace a philosophy of love and hard-work coupled with a college-bound curriculum grounded in basic skills, outstanding literature and moral virtues. In partnership with parents, they provide an environment of high expectations and accountability that equips all students with the choice to determine their success in life.

In addition to the core curriculum of phonics, poetry, vocabulary, foreign language and mathematics, MCP offers physical education, art and music classes once per week in elementary and twice per week in Middle School. Many students stay after school to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

Student Role in Agency:

  1. Read and Learn: You will be matched with a Milwaukee College Prep student in the elementary grades to read together, relax around a good book and enjoy time together over academic conversations.
  2. Tutor: You will be matched with a student and given an academic goal where progress can be tracked with help from the child's teacher. These goals are reflections of what needs improvement on their report card.
  3. After School Club Assistant: Many students stay after school to get involved in extra-curricular activities, i.e. drumming, musical productions, dance, athletics, open gym, etc. This would include providing structured supervision to the students.
