How The Early Middle College Works

Begin earning college credit in your junior year for a massive head start on your education.

The Early Middle College program allows students to stay in high school for an additional 13th year to earn up to 60 Credits, an Associates Degree, Professional Certificate, or a MEMCA Certificate.

Benefit from a gradual, strategic transition to college with expert guidance.

During the 11th and 12th grade years, students take a split load, with some courses through MIPS, and some through our college partner. This helps students to ease into college gradually, while also allowing them to gain college credit.

Graduate with a free Associate's Degree and a wealth of college experience.

During the 13th year, the majority of the student's courses are taken with our college partner, but students remain officially enrolled with MIPS. Students continue to attend a required check-in with the College and Career Coordinator during their 13th year.
