About Us

Buncombe County Middle College serves 11th and 12th grade students who could benefit from a unique learning environment.  Students’ reasons for coming to Middle College are as diverse as the students themselves. Our students prefer and appreciate a small, personalized learning environment. 

Our location on A-B Tech’s campus allows us to offer unique course options and to foster an academic environment that promotes career and college readiness.  One of our primary goals is to help students bridge the divide between high school and their post-graduation lives.

Buncombe County has some of the highest achieving public schools and one of the best community colleges in North Carolina. Buncombe County Schools is dedicated to meeting the needs of all students, including those who benefit from alternatives to traditional education. Some students’ needs are not met in a traditional high school setting. Middle College is another option for students seeking an alternative to Buncombe County’s already excellent system of schools.

Middle College is a NC Cooperative-Innovative High School. As such, our target population are students that would benefit from an accelerated high school pathway, students at risk of dropping out of high school, and students that will be the first in their family to graduate from college or who would have difficulty accessing community college and/or university education.
