New Middle College High School to Open in Matthews NC

The doors will open in January 2014 at the newest high school option in Matthews NC.  The Levine Campus of Central Piedmont Community Campus (CPCC) will host a new middle college high school.  Part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), the Levine Middle College High School offers tuition-free courses for 11th and 12th graders.  The CMS program will offer a new Grade 13 for students who want to spend an extra year to earn a tuition-free associate’s degree in addition to their high school diploma.

The Levine high school in Matthews will be similar to Cato Middle College High School in northeast Charlotte.  Cato has been operating since 2007.  The purpose of the middle college high schools is to offer students the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school and to transition them comfortably between high school and college.  Student take their required high school courses at the community college campus and may take community college classes at any CPCC campus.  Students new to the program take a CPCC College Success course in the first semester to help them adjust to college life.  The program tests students to determine the level of college classes that they may take.  The program also has eligibility requirements for entrance and to remain in the program.

The Matthews high school will open with 30-40 students from the existing program at Cato.  The program will include career training and internships.  The Levine campus is the site of the Joe Hendrick Center for Automotive Technology.  The high school students may access that program.  Another middle college high school in southwest Charlotte will open in August 2014.  Technical courses at that school will include construction, welding, electronics and screen printing.  Each of the new schools will have a principal, guidance counselor, registrar and six to eight teachers.
