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.

 

Come and build a community in a small cohort of juniors and seniors

Middle College at SJCC accepts juniors and seniors who build a safe learning environment where we support each other in order to achieve goals for the future. There are two teachers and a part-time counselor, and out aim is to help each student shape an educational environment that is interesting and empowering.

Maintain a connection with your home high school, if desired

Students from SJUSD can still play sports, join clubs, and go to school activities at their home high schools if they so desire and if those activities do not conflict with their classes.

Take courses that enrich your learning experience and set you on the path to your future!

Embedded into the Middle College enrichment courses are workshops on career and college success as well as life skills. The SJCC classes offer a wide range of subjects for student to take and experience.
