Middle College High School (MCHS) is a partnership between the Hamilton County Department of Education and Chattanooga State. MCHS serves as a launching pad for students in grades 10-12 to be “ahead of the game” and expedite their education.
Middle College High School offers students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree. Even if students haven’t earned an associate’s degree by high school graduation, students have earned college credit hours toward a college major of their choice. The Middle College High School supports student achievement by providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary for postsecondary success.
Nationally, MCHS students are some of the most sought-after students. Our graduates continue their education in colleges and universities across the nation. Ninety percent of MCHS graduates transfer to a four-year college or university. Additionally, our ACT composite continues to rank above the state and national average.
An ACT composite score of 19 or better is required for admission to the Chattanooga State Middle College High School program.
Reward schools are the top 5 percent of Tennessee schools for performance and the top 5 percent of Tennessee schools for progress as measured by a one-year success rate or growth measured by a one-year TVAAS school composite.
