Is anyone here in the middle college or dual enrollment program?
I've heard it called different things by different people, but it is essentially where high school students take college classes INSTEAD OF high school classes. You take one high school class that is taught at the community college by teachers from the district. For example, I switched from a rigorous private school for freshman and sophomore years to the middle college program. I have not actually set foot on the high school from the district with which I am affiliated because I take all classes at the community college. It's a great program, but I'm just wondering if any of you have had any experience with this and college applications. I know it is looked upon as a rigorous program, but I'm looking for ways to hilight that I am taking college classes (not AP classes, which seem to be grossly inflated where I am from). Also, I know that a lot of colleges (Cornell, specifically) say that they won't take credits from dual enrollment programs. This seems strange to me because I've heard of many college students who don't do well in rigorous classes at their respective colleges (Bio or high level math, for example) who re-take the classes at community colleges. I'm not sure how I would get my credits (I'm taking Bio 6A next quarter, which is a transferable course to ALL UCs, and I'd really like it to transfer to the private institutions to which I am applying). Is anyone familiar with this system?
