The Middle College National Consortium believes that authentic school reform grows out of sustained collaboration among master practitioners, structured communication, and support for perpetual growth of leadership skills for all constituents. Centered on four Design Principles, MCNC schools bridge the high school and college experience for underserved youth leading to increased access to and success in college. A school-based, data driven practitioner network, Middle College National Consortium has successfully pioneered innovation in programs that serve districts, community colleges, universities, both public and charter; around the country for over three decades.
