School Description

Middle College High School offers students a rigorous and challenging academic environment. We give students the opportunity to earn dual-enrollment credits while still in high school, thus reducing the completion time to earn a certificate and/or associate degree. Our unique school also helps students learn how to be motivated learners and develop their self-starter skills, which are essential to success in higher education and beyond. 

Students take all of their classes on the campus of Nashville State Community College, where we offer small class sizes and a low teacher-student ratio. This enhanced academic and social environment gives students invaluable access to college facilities and services, such as a learning resource centers, science and computer labs, a student center and tutoring. 

Families and community partners have a vital role in fostering student success. That’s why we regularly foster meaningful and effective collaboration with families and community partners. We also help encourage and empower our families and the diverse communities we serve.
