Middle College High School (San Pablo, CA)

Jan 2013

My daughter is a junior in (private) high school now, and she's interested in the possibility of doing a ''middle college'' program next year -- taking all of her classes at a community college but receiving credit to graduate from high school. The only information I've found thus far as to the Peralta Colleges (in Alameda County, where we live -- she'd be Oakland school district if she were in public school) is about high school seniors enrolling in community college classes, while they remain enrolled in (and taking courses at) their high schools. Which is another possibility, but ... is there some kind of middle college program available to Oakland kids?

Hi, sorry I don't know about Oakland, hopefully others will; but the highly rated charter Middle College HS in Contra Costa College could be worth looking at, especially if your child has any diversity in their background. They expressly say they are focused on admitting underserved populations and that very very few ''white'' kids will be admitted. My ''white'' daughter did not get in and her minority friend did, they had the same GPA, recommendations, and were both in the top 3 of their graduating middle school class. The program may be what you are looking for, they take all their classes there, get community college credit, and the high school really wants their high school kids to blend in with the college kids as if they are not really in a high school.
