Are You Ready
For College in High School?
What distinguishes Quinebaug Middle College (QMC) from most traditional high school settings is the highly-personalized support for student learning; shared commitment to fostering a climate of trust, respect, and dedication that is integral to its democratic learning community; and access to on-campus, early college experiences through Quinebaug Valley Community College.
Students who have successfully completed the 8th grade will be considered for admission to QMC. In order to take full advantage of QVCC courses and the personalized learning experience, it is essential that entering students be ready to join the Middle College community with the energy, determination and independence to succeed in this unique setting. Prospective students must be ready to demonstrate commitment to their own success, a willingness to take risks in sharing their ideas and creative achievements, and the desire to support others in pursuit of their individual and shared goals.
For this reason, students undergo a four-step application process to insure both the student and parent(s)/guardian(s) understand the Middle College concept and expectations.
The applicant process includes:
1. Completion of application with required supporting documents;
2. Tour and orientation to the Middle College Program;
3. Personal meeting with Middle College staff and students; and,
4. Selection for admission by lottery.
Students who meet requirements for entry but who are not selected by the lottery process will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which their names were drawn. These individuals will then be eligible for admission based on available space.
Students wishing to apply may fill out the 2018-2019 application and send to:
Gino LoRicco, QMC
