What is an Early Middle College?

The Livingston County Early College is a unique opportunity for students to earn college credits, an associate’s degree, industry credentials or technical certificates in a Career Pathway while in high school.

Students will begin blending their high school course work with CTE programs and college level coursework in 11th grade, adding additional college courses in 
12th grade and complete a full schedule of college coursework in a 13th year.

Early college courses will be taken at local area high schools, community colleges and extension campuses such as Mott Community College at M-Tech, Lansing Community College at Parker Middle School
 in Howell, Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, and Cleary University in Howell.

The Livingston County Early College is available to Livingston County high school students through a partnership of Livingston County public school districts and the Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA).
