Middle College High School Applications will Open Soon for Incoming Freshmen

Families, do you want your child to take college classes for free while they're in high school? Do you want them to have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma and a college AA degree at the same time? If so, then here is an opportunity for your child who will be in 9th grade for the 2021-22 school year.

Middle College High School (MCHS) at Contra Costa College (CCC) is a highly rigorous academic program structured to provide successful, challenging, and meaningful experiences for students. MCHS is an Early College High School program. The purpose of MCHS, in collaboration with CCC, is to create a nurturing and academically challenging environment for traditionally underserved students to reach their full potential in a non-traditional high school setting.

To get ready for the application process, have your child:

  1. Begin to write an autobiographical letter about themselves. 

  2. List out accomplishments, extra-curricular activities, and accomplishments they have had.

  3. Describe any special skills, foreign language, church/volunteer activities.

Reach out to your child’s middle school counselor for more information. The application process should be out in January. Flyer here.
