EARLY MIDDLE COLLEGE
PTCC’s Early Middle College program allows students in state-approved alternative learning program to earn college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college courses at eligible postsecondary institutions. This program is specifically designed to allow the student to earn dual high school and college credit with a well-defined pathway to allow the student to earn a postsecondary degree or credential.
Students enrolled in the Early Middle College program will maintain their status as a member of their alternative program, while also becoming a college student and a member of the PTCC campus community. This cooperative effort on behalf of both the college and the alternative program will ensure the student receives the wrap-around supports that foster success. Students in the program will be treated like adults and are expected to meet the academic and behavior expectations of the college community.
PTCC partners with the following Alternative Learning Programs to offer Early Middle College opportunities to high school students:
- East Central Crossroads
- Hinckley-Finlayson Empower Learning Center
- Mora Alternative Learning Center
- Pine City Alternative Learning Center
