Students will earn a college degree through our early college or middle college programs or earn individual college credits through a Jumpstart to College pathway, all while still completing their high school diploma requirements.  

Students are registered for standard college courses taught by Montgomery College professors on our campuses, online or at select high school sites.

What People are Saying
My son took several classes at Montgomery College in his senior year of high school. Not only did he earn nine credits which transferred to a four-year university, but also he developed an understanding of the rigors and expectations of college-level coursework. And he enjoyed his professors, too.
