I just looked into what this middle college option was all about. How cool! I love that it doesn't presuppose the type of kid who will benefit and that it allows kids who aren't getting what they need from traditional schooling--for whatever reason--to study at high school and community college concurrently. I did a little of this, sort of, when I was in high school in order to accommodate extra vocal workshops, master classes, etc. Some of this was through the cc and some was through the non-academic vocational track, lol! It's nice to know that these sorts of options still exist.
