    Middle College Simon Youth Academy @ Northgate Mall

    Middle College High School Simon Youth Academy is our largest location and is the main office and intake center for our Middle College Schools. Two programs are located at this site.

    MCHS at Northgate is a small community school that provides a program for students to complete their high school diploma while juggling other commitments. Many of the students work and or attend Running Start at North Seattle College while also taking classes at Northgate.

    Our second program is our eLearning Academy. This program supports students who come to our school credit deficient and may need more support to get their academic skills at junior level status and ability in order to transfer to one of our Middle College locations. Students may also continue this program through graduation.
