Early/Middle College Information

Program Overview:

The Early/Middle College Partnership between Woodhaven-Brownstown School District (WBSD) and Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) was created to give students an opportunity to pursue an associate degree while still in high school.  Students will take a blend of high school and college courses for three to five years depending on when the student enters the program, completing the degree in year 5 (Grade 13).  In the ninth and tenth grade year, students will take classes through the WBSD and participate in courses taught by WCCCD staff on WBSD property.  During the 11th and 12th grade years, students will take classes both at the high school and on campus.  During the 13th year, all courses will be taken on WCCCD campus.  The college tuition will be paid by the WBSD, providing a substantial savings for parents and students.  The goals of the Early/Middle College program are:
