About the Middle College:
Housed on the Harrison campus of Mid Michigan Community College, the Middle College guides and encourages juniors and seniors from four local high schools, including Beaverton, Clare, Gladwin, and Harrison, through their first experience with college classes.
Students are able to earn transferable college credits and take part in job-shadowing opportunities while completing a high school diploma. The college courses the students take will include prerequisites needed to complete a certificate or an associates degree program at Mid Michigan Community College, or to transfer to a 4-year college.
Unlike traditional dual enrollment, students in the Middle College will be mentored throughout their Middle College experience. They will attend seminars and receive individualized guidance, which will prepare them to be successful in college. Individualized tutoring will also be provided as needed.
