Middle College Mission

The mission of the Germanna Community College Middle College Program is to provide a unique learning environment to help our students achieve their academic, career, and personal goals.

About Middle College

The Middle College Program is designed to meet the needs of people who are between 18-26 years old and have not graduated from high school. The comprehensive goal of the program is to have the students complete the Middle College Program, enroll in a certificate or degree program at Germanna Community College, and enter the workforce. Academically, the focus of the program is to help students prepare for the GED and earn college credit simultaneously.
