Milpitas Middle College High School Eligibility Requirements


MCHS Learning Model: Scholars with High Academic Potential (80%) or Advanced Achievement (20%) are able to obtain college experience and accrue college credit by enrolling in a highly challenging and supportive environment. Students will pair Honors Level High School courses with College Level coursework as they work toward both a high school diploma as well as foundational college work that will set them on a pathway to their postsecondary goals. The high school coursework will be offered between 8:45am and 12:05pm daily at the SJCC Extension Campus, while the College Coursework (some of which will be applied to their A-G requirements) will be taken before and/or after the high school hours through San Jose City College.

MCHS Requirements: Scholars attending Milpitas MCHS will be expected to maintain good academic standing and excellent participation in all their courses. Any scholars on academic probation in their high school or college courses will be required to attend tutoring (provided by the MCHS and available through SJCC).


*We target High Potential first generation college scholars and leaders as part of the Milpitas MCHS mission.
