The middle college concept is a national educational model that allows high school students to take dual credit classes on a college campus, and earn both high school and college credit while completing their high school career. Located on Trident Technical College's Berkeley Campus, the Berkeley Middle College High School curriculum includes the core courses required for high school graduation. Trident Technical College offers courses in addition to those required for high school graduation, though many times those courses fulfill high school requirements.
Last year 18 students from the Middle College graduated with associate degrees and five others received Pre-Nursing Certificates all before graduating with their high school diplomas.
