Wyoming Public Schools Middle College
Wyoming Public Schools Middle College (WMC) is collaborative project between Wyoming Public Schools (WPS) and Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) as a school-within-a-school five-year, “hybrid” entity combining the best elements of high school and college. The intent is for the entity to evolve no later than year three from a school-within-a-school to become a separate college regional center for the City of Wyoming offering the Middle College, dual enrollment opportunities, and adult college learning course work. For year one, the WMC students attend school at a high school site within the Wyoming Public Schools (WPS) and engage in an exciting college-preparatory curriculum taught by highly-qualified and fully fully-certified Wyoming secondary teachers. WMC offers students from Wyoming High School the opportunity to fulfill their requirements for a high school diploma by completing a rigorous college preparatory coursework experience while gaining valuable college readiness skills, their high school diplomas, and earning up to sixty-two (62) transferable college credits towards their undergraduate degree and/or an Associate Degree from Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC). This opportunity provides each student a free jumpstart on their college education and the ability to performing successfully with college level proficiency, ready to further extend their learning.
