IN COLLABORATION WITH GRAND RAPIDS COMMUNITY COLLEGE, EAST KENTWOOD HIGH SCHOOL 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 starting in high school.
Purpose: EKMC provides 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.
