Now accepting applications
for the 2017–2018 school year

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 new student cohort. Students must enroll in the middle college by the fall of 11th grade, so now is the time for current 10th grade students in St. Clair County to apply.

The application process consists of the following steps:

  1. Learn about the Blue Water Middle College Academy by reading the information below and the Student/Parent Information document linked to on the right side of this page. You are also encouraged to contact any of the middle college staff members listed at the right with any questions you might have.

  2. Interested students must submit an application no later than March 31, 2017.

  3. Students who apply (and at least one parent or guardian) are required to meet with a middle college staff member at SC4 for an enrollment interview. The goal of the interview is for students to get an individualized picture of the benefits and challenges of becoming a middle college student.

  4. After the interview, students who want to enroll must sign a "Request to Enroll" agreement listing expectations and requirements of Blue Water Middle College Academy students.

  5. SC4 placement testing must be completed in the spring along with other registration requirements.
