Michigan Dept of Ed with Black Bear

Big Bay de Noc School has completed the rigorous application process with the Michigan Department of Education and has been approved as an Early/Middle College. With Bay de Noc Community College as a partner, this Early/Middle College will give students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associate degree while in high school and during a 13th year. Student's, starting as early as their 9th grade year, and as late as the fall of their 11th grade year will take both high school courses and college courses. The tuition and regular fees for the college courses will be paid for by Big Bay de Noc School.

The Early/Middle College is structured so that students gradually increase their experience to college courses over a five-year plan. In addition, students enrolled in the Early/Middle College program will receive support from both Big Bay de Noc School Staff and Bay de Noc Community College Staff, especially in the final year when students will experience a more comprehensive transition to the college coursework.
