In collaboration with Las Positas College, the Tri-Valley Regional Occupational Program, Dublin and Livermore school districts -- Pleasanton school district is offering its current high school sophomores an opportunity to a receive a high school education while concurrently earning college credits.
The program will be holding an informational meeting from 6:30-7:30 tonight, Feb. 3, at Las Positas College, room 2420.
The "Middle College" program aims to help students prepare themselves for college and a career, expose students to career opportunities and courses not available to high school students, and provide students support services needed to be successful in high school and college courses.
Students enrolled in Middle College will take all their college course classes on the Las Positas College campus in Livermore, with college instructors and college students.
Middle College does not follow the same daily schedule as the traditional high school. Therefore, each student will have a different schedule based on the day and times of his or her college classes.
Middle College students can take no more than 11 college credits a semester.
College courses taken can translate to high school credits, and most credits will transfer to other colleges and universities -- depending on the course work.
Middle College students will also be able to participate in clubs and student activities at Las Positas College, in addition to any extracurricular activities at their high school.
Students do not need to pay to be a part of the program, but they must be academically eligible and should not be credit deficient.
In addition to the application process, students must take the Las Positas College English and mathematics placement test.
Middle College is currently looking for interested students to be a part of the 2015-16 Junior Class Cohort, made up of 30 students.
