The Middle College High School Program (MCHS) at Moreno Valley College (MVC), made possible through the special partnership with Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD) and Val Verde Unified School District (VVUSD), provides high school students the opportunity to complete their last two years of high school at Moreno Valley College, taking both high school and college classes. MCHS was established in 1999 by the three educational organizations through a special grant from the California Community College Chancellor's Office.
MCHS students complete their last two years of high school at MVC, enrolled in both high school and college courses. MCHS students enroll in college courses which satisfy high school graduation requirements, "A-G" courses, or courses that are transferable or that can be applied towards an Associate Degree. Each semester students enroll in no more than 11 college units and each winter and summer session they enroll in no more than 5 college units. MCHS students have the opportunity to complete more than one year worth of college units by the end of their senior year of high school.
