    WHAT IS MIDDLE COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL AT DURHAM TECHNICAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE?

    MCHS is a Durham Public Schools high school that accepts students who reside in Durham or Orange Counties. Applicants may be from a public school district, home school, charter school, or private school. We serve 11th and 12th graders who would like to challenge themselves by taking honors-level high school courses and free college courses at Durham Technical Community College.  Students may graduate from high school with a year or more of college transfer credit. Some students also graduate from high school with an associate degree or a career/trade certification.
