City Middle College High School Program
Garfield, in collaboration with San Diego City College, offers a middle college high school program. The program is intended for seriously at-risk students who are 17 years and older, have only half the number of credits they need in order to earn a high school diploma, and are without any long-term educational career goals.
Students have the opportunity to earn a joint diploma while gaining work experience and increased career opportunities through the extensive practical arts programs at San Diego City College.
Who is eligible for CMC?
Students 17 to 19 years of age who have been referred to Garfield and have good attendance for a least two months at Garfield, are eligible to participate in the City Middle College program. Counselors refer students who lack credits to graduate. They also refer students who do not find the high school atmosphere academically engaging.
How do students enroll in the program?
Students who wish to participate in the City Middle College program must first be referred to Garfield High School. Counselors recommend them to the program and a teacher, who is also the college liaison interviews them before they are accepted into CMC. There are three opportunities per year to enroll: twice in the City College spring semester and once in the Fall semester.
