Middle College

Attention 10th and 11th graders!  Are you interested in being a part time college student next year? Are you interested in taking high school and college courses on the De Anza Campus instead of on your high school campus?  If so, then Middle College might be the program for you. Middle College consists of students who take their high school English, History, and Advisory Elective on the De Anza campus, and take diverse, fun, rigorous college courses through De Anza for the rest of their schedule. Please check out the Middle College website and come to the Middle College Info and Application Meeting to learn more about the program and hear from Middle College teachers and students.

Due to the current Omicron surge, we will be holding two informational meetings via Zoom. Please register for the meeting you plan to attend here:

  • Evening meeting: Wednesday, January 19
  • Daytime meeting - NEW DATE AND TIME: Friday, January 21st from 10:45-11:15am during Tutorial/Flex.

We have also made adjustments our Middle College Application timeline, so please take note of the changes in the Middle College Timeline Information below on this webpage.


Middle College is an educational alternative for FUHSD juniors and seniors who need a different high school environment in order to achieve success -- academically, socially and/or emotionally. Students earn high school and college credit simultaneously, complete requirements for high school graduation and explore individual interests through a diverse college curriculum.

Middle College students are required to take two high school courses each year, taught by Fremont Union High School District teachers on the De Anza campus, to satisfy high school graduation requirements. Juniors take an integrated course in American Literature and US History, while Seniors take Contemporary Literature as well as semester courses in Economics and US Government.
