All Early College-Middle College high schools have as their primary mission the goal of preparing students for college. To achieve this, schools give students rigorous course work and even college classes beginning in the ninth grade.
To support students, the MCNC has developed advisories, special classes designed to support students academically and emotionally. MCNC has an experienced coach who works with schools to set up these advisories, tailoring them to the schools.
MCNC also has math and literacy coaches who work with teachers to create rigorous course work. Rigorous classes and difficult classes are not alike: A rigorous class has meaningful work that engages students in learning and education, while a difficult class just has a lot of work.
MCNC’s strategic partner is the National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools and Teaching, Columbia University, Teachers College. NCREST collects data and help schools analyze their data to improve the effectiveness of their teaching and the rigor of their work. MCNC also runs an electronic learning community that allows schools to communicate with and learn from each other, as well as participating in more formal professional development.
