Middle College High School is an alternative high school option to earn credits for a high school diploma and preparation for higher education in a small, caring environment, which includes three unique schools. Each school offers core (i.e. Math, History, Language Arts, and Science) high school academic subjects that meet district requirements to graduate. Middle College High Schools share a common mission to encourage the development of community, personal responsibility and active learning. Students attend daily classes in a small, personal environment where each student receives individual help and instruction from the friendly teaching and support staff. Each Middle College High School site envisions its graduates performing with college level proficiency in writing and mathematics.​

Who can apply?
Middle College High School programs are open to all students, sixteen or older, who may or may not be thriving in their present school environment and who are looking for an educational option to prepare for college and complete their high school graduation requirements in a small school setting. Each site has different credit requirement to apply. Check them out for credit amount needed.
