EK Middle College

East Kentwood Middle College

WE ARE EXCITED TO SHARE A NEW LEARNING OPPORTUNITY AT EAST KENTWOOD HIGH SCHOOL.  IN COLLABORATION WITH GRAND RAPIDS COMMUNITY COLLEGE, WE WILL BE OFFERING A MIDDLE COLLEGE PROGRAM.  

 

The East Kentwood Middle College (EKMC) is a unique educational opportunity that will allow students to graduate with a high school diploma, transferable college credits and an Associate of Arts degree starting in 10th grade. An Associate of Arts degree consists of general studies type courses; it is not an art degree. The EKMC is designed to prepare students for postsecondary study and/or employment. 

Purpose:  EKMC will provide an educational opportunity to students who have a genuine interest in college preparedness. Potential candidates must be willing and able to succeed at the college level, starting as a 10th grade student and continuing through an additional year beyond 12th grade.

The 2019-2020 EK Middle College application window is now open!

All applications and recommendation forms are due April 11, 2019.

NEW EXTENDED deadline - April, 30, 2019
 

Turn In:

  • Applications:  Students should turn in completed applications to the Freshman Campus Guidance office.
  • Recommendation Forms: Students should make sure they allow teachers enough time to complete and submit teacher recommendation forms.


Please check back periodically for more information about the application process for Cohort 2 and other important information.
