The Monroe County Middle College is a collaboration between the Monroe County Intermediate School District (ISD), Monroe County Community College, and Mercy Memorial Hospital System and is designed to provide students with early entry into a health careers program.
Students enter the Monroe County Middle College in the 9th grade with a comprehensive curriculum that will culminate with award of a high school diploma upon graduation. Students in the program also have the opportunity to earn up to 60 transferable college credit hours or an associate's degree and/or a certificate in the field of health science.
The Monroe County Middle College began school on September 8, 2009 with an initial cohort of 38 ninth grade students. As these students matriculate yearly another group of 40-60 9th graders will be accepted. Features of the school include small school setting with all Middle College instruction by highly qualified Michigan certified teachers. Dual enrollment classes are taken at MCCC and taught by MCCC staff members or adjunct professors. Students also have contact with professional staff members from Mercy Memorial Hospital System.
