An independent, tuition-free, open-enrollment public secondary charter school
Opening in August of 2020
Serving learners age 12 – 20 from across the state
Located in Madison, Wisconsin
School can be inspiring and engaging — if students have a say in how, where, and when it happens.
We can all be empowered to co-create the world we want — if we learn democratic skills we need to build that better world together.
A Design Team of youth and adults have been designing Milestone together since the Summer of 2018.
Parents, grandparents, educators, and community stakeholders serve on our Board to help guide Milestone toward its vision.
Here, learning is engaging, all voices are heard, and the most important step is the next one.
Design your own learning plans with an advisor, develop your own projects, and connect with your communities through internships.
Open to any student in the state who wants to attend, our school is located at 2758 Dairy Drive in Madison.
Our space is open, flexible, and ready for amazing programming, including a makerspace, open outdoors space, and an auditorium.
Milestone is committed to the health and safety of our school community above all.
Accordingly, the Educators’ Cooperative of Milestone is planning to start our 2020-21 school year with Personalized Remote Learning, where students will still be able to meet face-to-face with their Advisors regularly, but will do the majority of their learning from home.
Milestone is a membership-based not-for-profit organization, with rights reserved for the voting members of our community. Until we receive an affirmative vote from Milestone members (which include students, families/caregivers, staff, and community stakeholders who apply for membership) to open the school building, we will continue with Personalized Remote Learning.
All Board of Directors meetings, Design Team meetings, and Committee meetings are open to the public, and may include Public Comment time in the agenda.
In addition, “Open House” hours are available twice per week. Drop in with questions or to chat with us!
Democratic School Designed by youth for youth!
