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.
March EK Middle College UPDATE 2020
The EKMC application process is now open until March 12, 2020. Any interested and current, EK 9th grade students should complete the East Kentwood Middle College application and give one Teacher Recommendation Form to a current teacher. Teachers will complete the Recommendation Form and submit them on the student's behalf. Selected applicants will be contacted to set up student interviews for the week of March 16, 2020. Students should plan to check their school email for updates and any communication.
Applications are due by 3/12/2020 3:00. Completed applications should be submitted to the EKFC Guidance Office or emailed to [email protected]
