The Northwest Opportunities Vocational Academy (NOVA)

was founded in 1993 as an alternative, school-to-work program for “at-risk” students residing on the northwest side of Milwaukee.

In partnership with the Milwaukee Public Schools, NOVA High school is operated by TransCenter for Youth, Inc.. One hundred students in grades 9-12 are offered a full day program, which leads to a high school diploma
