Application Process

All students who are 16+ and have earned the credits of a junior or senior are welcome to apply to Middle College. Check with your high school counselor at your base school and let them know you are interested in coming to Middle College.

An interview will be set up and both the student and guardian are requested to attend. The decision to come to Middle College is usually reached during the interview where transcripts are reviewed and schedules are discussed to see if Middle College is the best option.
Students need to provide their own transportation to and from the AB Tech campus. The city bus lines also serve AB Tech and are sometimes a good form of transportation for students without a car.
