Middleburg High School offers maximum flexibility in accelerated pathways with 4 distinct college preparatory tracks. Students are encouraged to pursue the program best suited to their personality, skill-set, interest, and future goals.
AP Capstone: AP Capstone is a new 2-year high school pilot program developed by the College Board, which consists of two new courses: the AP Seminar and AP Research, both of which introduce and develop skills that colleges covet. Students who successfully complete the program and obtain scores of 3 or higher on at least four other AP exams receive either an AP Capstone Diploma or an AP Capstone Certificate making them more marketable to colleges.
Collegiate High: The Collegiate High School program allows admitted students to complete a full 60 credits of dual enrollment coursework, culminating in earning both a standard high school diploma as well as an Associate of Arts (AA) Degree upon the completion of four years of high school. All interested 8th or 9th grade students and parents must attend one of the sessions in their School District in order to apply. If the number of eligible students who apply exceeds the number of seats allowed for the program, a lottery will be applied for the final selection.
Bronco U: Bronco U is an amalgam of Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment courses. This path allows for maximum flexibility in scheduling. While state graduation requirements still apply, no additional requisite courses exist in this model, allowing students to custom-tailor a blend of courses suited to their interest and skill levels.
Industry Certification: Students have the opportunity in Academy and Career and Technical Education courses to earn industry certifications. The certifications assess knowledge, skills, and competencies that show mastery in a particular industry. Industry certifications provide students with proof of a marketable skill set for relevant careers, additionally, many certifications articulate to college credit.
