Starting Fall 2017, the Early Middle College Program at Ottawa Hills High School will allow students the opportunity to take college courses right at Ottawa Hills.
The program will begin in 10th grade with students taking college courses, along with high school classes. Students in the program complete a 13th year made up primarily of college courses. The result is students graduate after year 13 with a high school diploma and an associate degree with at least 60 transferable credits! Students need to apply in 9th grade and have a minimum 2.5 GPA. Students applying for the program should also have a positive behavior and attendance record.
