San Jose Middle College is an advanced program for juniors and seniors who take 2-3 free college classes and 4 high school classes on the San Jose City College campus. Students earn a high school diploma while at the same time accumulating transferable college credit towards community and 4 year universities.
We are administered by San Jose Unified School District under the Learning Options Department, with a close relationship with San Jose City College and its administration. Our students have been accepted into all major UC, private and state universities. While at Middle College, students and staff help form a close community that focuses on respect, support, and both personal and academic achievement.
