Who We Are

Milwaukee Achiever Literacy Services is an adult literacy program founded in 1983 by Alverno College, Cardinal Stritch University, and Mount Mary College. By providing a caring and supportive environment for learning and personal growth, Milwaukee Achiever is empowering learners to achieve education, career and life goals every day! In 2009, Milwaukee Achiever was accredited by ProLiteracy, a nonprofit educational organization that evaluates and supports literacy organizations across the country and around the world.

What We Do

We specialize in one-on-one tutoring and small group instruction for adults who are working to improve their lives and their communities. Through education, we help them create a new beginning and achieve their goals.
