    An important message for the JMAC community

Madison Knights are ‘Respectful – Responsible – Safe’

James Madison Academic Campus (JMAC) is a comprehensive high school on Milwaukee’s northwest side. Our mission is to prepare students for post-secondary education and/or skilled employment that allows students to be competitive in the 21st century.

We offer a challenging curriculum of rigorous classes including AP and Honors classes. We are also a National Academy Foundation (N.A.F.) School. We offer two academics: Academy of Health Sciences and Academy of Finance. Our alternative programs include credit recovery classes and a successful GED-O2 course.


In addition to classroom learning, students may participate in athletics and a variety of clubs. Our student council governs many school social events. Student leaders work within the school and the greater community to create a positive culture.

We encourage students to show strong character, develop leadership skills and be positive role models so that our graduates enhance our future.
