Title:  Middle College High School
Description: Middle College High Schools are alternative high schools located on college campuses that aim to help at-risk students complete high school and encourage them to attend collvege. The four-year program offers a project-centered, interdisciplinary curriculum with an emphasis on team teaching, individualized attention, and the development of critical thinking skills. Students are also offered support services, including specialized counseling, peer support, and career experience opportunities. In recent years, some Middle College High Schools have converted to the Early College High School model, which offers students a five-year, accelerated course of study during which they can earn an associate degree or two years of college credits, in addition to a high school diploma. This review focuses only on the four-year Middle College High School model.
