EASTCONN’s Quinebaug Middle College (QMC), a regional magnet high school, is currently recruiting academically motivated students who will enter grades 9-12 in 2020-2021. Students seeking a more independent learning environment, tailored to their academic and career goals, are welcome to apply. The application deadline is Fri., Feb. 28, 2020. For more information or to download an application, visit www.eastconn.org/qmc.
QMC is located on the campus of Quinebaug Valley Community College (QVCC), at 742 Upper Maple St., Danielson.
QMC offers high school students the unique middle college experience, which enables them to earn a high school degree, while also earning college credits from QVCC at no additional cost. Once enrolled at QMC, students will have access to high-tech laboratories, career and vocational resources, and other college amenities.
Students who successfully complete QVCC courses have an advantage when applying to college or any post-secondary program, not only because they’ve earned free, transferrable college credits, but because they’ve demonstrated their ability to succeed in a college environment. Highly motivated students can graduate from high school with enough credits to earn an associate’s degree.
Areas of study at QMC include STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), liberal arts, the humanities, allied health or advanced manufacturing.
QMC is operated by EASTCONN as part of a partnership that includes QVCC, Brooklyn, Franklin, Killingly, Plainfield, Pomfret, Thompson, Voluntown, Windham and Woodstock. Enrollment is not limited to students who live in partner towns; students from across the region are welcome to apply.
