Gary Middle College is an accelerated adult education program where students can earn a CORE 40 high school diploma from the State of Indiana and prepare for employment, certification programs, or college degree programs. Students are able to transfer previously earned credits and ECA test scores from past high schools and will complete the remaining credit requirements and pass both ECA tests at Gary Middle College prior to graduation.
Gary Middle College operates Monday–Friday, from 8:00AM–8:00PM. Students are required to attend school for four hours a day, but may choose any school shift–8AM-11PM, 12PM-3PM, 4PM-8PM, during GMC hours to attend school, thus allowing students to take care of work and home responsibilities. Child care for GMC students is available at an off site location, and students are responsible for dropping off and picking up their child from the facility.
We prepare our students with the skills and tools they’ll need, to not only receive a high school diploma, but also to excel at the collegiate level or complete a job certification program. We implement successful teaching methods and technology in a modern classroom environment that promotes learning tailored to each individual student. By utilizing this approach, our students advance academically, socially, and personally, sometimes at a surprising pace. We build on each student’s existing assets to reach the ultimate goal of full-time employment in a well-paid position to provide better for their families and the community of Gary, Indiana.
We will make no excuses for our student population and we fully commit to ensuring that all students demonstrate growth in character, academics, life skills, the arts, and wellness using research-based instructional strategies tailored to each student’s individual needs.
Gary Middle College serves the community of Gary by providing opportunities for individuals to drastically change their lives. We offer any adult of any age the chance to increase his or her earning potential by completing his or her high school diploma.
