QMC Admissions

Who Are QMC Students?


QMC students desire a small, nurturing learning community that values the unique traits of individual students. They are empowered to make decisions about their own education and choose to participate fully in a democratic learning community. They believe in service to others, both locally and globally; want access to college classes as part of their high school program; and take advantage of that access as soon as they are ready.


On satisfaction surveys, QMC students report that they are most surprised by their own academic success and increased commitment to learning while at QMC. They attribute this growth to the work of their caring teachers and the school’s motivating environment. During their time at QMC, most students show:


  • Increased achievement in QMC courses;

  • High enrollment and success in Quinebaug Valley Community College (QVCC) classes; and,

  • High graduation rates and success in post-secondary endeavors.


We believe strongly that learning matters more than "seat time." Therefore, we accommodate the needs of students whose acquisition of skills and knowledge takes longer than the traditional time allotted in semesters and school years. Occasionally this may delay a student’s year of graduation.


The majority of our graduating students pursue post-secondary education, including 4-year, 2-year, and professional training education. Many of our graduates begin their post-secondary college careers at QVCC and stay connected with QMC as a result. Others go on to other colleges and universities, including, but not limited to:
