Middle College High Schools (MCHS) are CMS Cooperative Innovative High Schools available on Central Piedmont's Cato, Levine, Harper, and Merancas campuses. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) students can enroll in middle colleges to earn college credits and complete their high school classes simultaneously.
Middle college students have access to all Central Piedmont student amenities such as labs, libraries, and activities. You may graduate from the middle college high school at the end of the 12th grade as long as your high school requirements are met.
Real World Education
At Central Piedmont, your education goes beyond what you learn in class. We offer numerous opportunities for you to enhance your learning — and to make friends, network, and pursue your passions — through clubs and organizations, sports, events and activities, leadership opportunities, job experience, volunteer experiences, visual and performing arts, and even international experiences.
I wanted to save money while getting a jump on my college education. Attending Central Piedmont’s middle college high school helped me accomplish both of those goals.
