About Middle College

The Middle College Program is for students looking for an unconventional path for high school graduation and a college education. The partnership between KCPS, Full Employment Council and MCC-Penn Valley Community College offers students a blended learning instructional model that will utilize Gradpoint online coursework and direct instruction to provide students the necessary support needed for academic success. This program incorporates the high standards of a college environment while providing a safe and supportive community.

How the Middle College Program Works

This program incorporates the high standards of a college environment while providing a safe and supportive community. KCPS and MCC-Penn Valley Campus will work to build skills in preparation for the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) exam and future post-secondary options. After a student passes the HiSET they can enroll in MCC-Penn Valley for a 2-year degree program or attend a technical school tuition-free. The Full Employment Council (FEC) will provide support services to help students complete the academic portion of the Middle College program. The organization will also assist students with job placement after graduation.

Who Qualifies

This program is for students 17-24 years old who dropped out of KCPS system.
