Managed by National Heritage Academies, Milwaukee Scholars Charter School (MSCS) is located in the Havenwood Neighborhood of Northeastern Milwaukee.  Founded on the four pillars of academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility; Milwaukee Scholars is the only National Heritage Academies School in the state of Wisconsin, heading into its fourth year with over 661 students.

At Milwaukee Scholars we have very simple beliefs:  Set high standards, make expectations clear, provide meaningful instruction, and watch children excel.  Every student is given the tools for success, in and out of the classroom.  With a commitment to hard work, good citizenship, and personal responsibility, students experience a safe, secure learning environment where achievement thrives.  We also set the expectation that all students will be prepared to attend college.

Learning does not stop at Milwaukee Scholars Charter School when the school year ends.  This summer, MSCS provided a five week long program to prevent summer learning loss.  Each morning students were provided with rigorous work reviewing math skills, reading, and writing skills learned in the previous year and preparing them for the year ahead.

The afternoons provided the fun that every child looks forward to during their summer break.  Following a weekly theme (fashion, outer space, plant life, animals, and sports), afternoon enrichment was a time for students to research, discuss, and create projects to display and apply what they have learned about a given topic.

To close each week's theme, the program held a field trip or on-campus experience.  Students had the opportunity to tour the Milwaukee Brewer's Miller Park and the Growing Power Urban Ecology Center.  They also experienced a local petting zoo and put on their own science fair and fashion show.  Families and staff were proud to see the ownership our scholars took over their learning this summer and look forward to the benefits it will bring to the upcoming school year!

We are "building a Foundation" at Milwaukee Scholars that will lead to proficiency and Beyond. 
We work hard each day to foster lifelong learning, to close the achievement gap
and to produce college bound scholars. In doing this, we believe our students
will have the necessary tools and knowledge needed in order to
compete in the country's future work force.
