“Middle College” for High School Students

Apr 03, 2016 04:35PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

MDUSD is starting a new program for 30 high school juniors called Middle College, beginning in fall of 2016. Housed at Diablo Valley College, Middle College students will take three high school courses taught by MDUSD teachers (English, social science and advisory) at their high school and the rest of their courses at DVC, earning both high school and college credit. Admission is through an MDUSD application for the program. Students would receive both high school credit and college credit for courses.

Middle College is designed to serve students from across the Mt. Diablo Unified School district, and a total of 30 students will be accepted to the program for fall 2016. Starting in fall 2017, the program will serve 11th and 12th grade students. Students who apply must exhibit a high level of maturity and motivation and be eager for a rigorous academic experience. All high school and college textbooks, fees, materials, and parking (if applicable) are provided by MDUSD, and there is no additional cost to attend the Middle College Program. All MCP students will take adult college courses with adult college students and earn high school credits and up to 12 college credits per semester. The goal is to have Middle College students finish the program with a high school diploma and a minimum 36 college credits.

At a recent board meeting, MDUSD board member Cheryl Hanson said, “We are serious about trying to bring more challenging opportunities to our kids and more college availability.” To apply to the Middle College Program (MCP) students must submit a completed application and two recommendation forms (teacher recommendation form and counselor recommendation form) by April 6 to their school counselor. Applications are available online through the mdusd.org website or from the student’s MDUSD school counselor.

Students who submit applications will hear from MCP about their admissions status by April 14. The Middle College Program runs from August 12, 2016 - May 26, 2016.
