Fleming County High School SBDM Policy 2.1

Middle College Program


The Fleming County High School Middle College Program is designed to meet the needs of students who excel academically and who possess the personal characteristics needed to successfully attend college earlier than the traditional age. Middle College students will enjoy the best of both worlds as they’ll be earning college credit and attending classes on a college campus (Maysville Community and Technical College/MCTC) while still participating in all the extra-curricular activities at their “home” high school. This handbook outlines specific requirements, criteria, and guidelines that will answer most, if not all, of your questions. If you need additional information please contact Libby Cannon at or Julie Moore at
