Grenada’s Middle College program is an alternative for students who desire a different high school experience. Students may qualify to take college courses as a junior and receive an associate’s degree or national certification by the time they graduate from high school.
This is terrific news for ambitious scholars who can’t wait to earn a college degree, students eager to enter the workforce with accreditation, and first-generation college students with limited means who may be able to achieve an advanced education at a drastically reduced cost.
Choose one of two paths:
How Much Does the Program Cost?
GSD will assist in paying the tuition and fees for students. The tuition for a student at Holmes Community College will be $1,350 plus $17 per hour per semester ($1,605). That equates to $2,700 (academic) or $3,210 (vocational), or a total saving of over $5,400/$6,420.
If a student fails a class or withdrawals, he or she is responsible for paying the tuition.
Is Middle College Right for You?
If you’re a student who participates in extra activities, this program may not be for you. By enrolling in Middle College, you are not only taking on a heavy academic workload, you are also agreeing to meet these expectations:

Devote a minimum of 3 hours to homework and study.
Arrive to school daily and to all classes on time.
Complete all MDE, Grenada School District, and GHMC requirements.
Keep your parents informed of your academic progress at GHMC.
Adhere to Holmes Community College attendance requirements.
