About Us

Buncombe County has some of the highest achieving public schools and one of the best community colleges in North Carolina. Buncombe County Schools is dedicated to meeting the needs of all students, including those who benefit from alternatives to traditional education. Some students’ needs are not met in a traditional high school setting. Middle College is an more option for students seeking an alternative to Buncombe County’s already excellent system of schools.

Middle College is a NC Cooperative-Innovative High School. As such, our target population are students that would benefit from an accelerated high school pathway, students at risk of dropping out of high school, and students that will be the first in their family to graduate from college or who would have difficulty accessing community college and/or university education.
