Middle College

Alta Vista - Middle College Program

In collaboration with Santa Barbara City College (SBCC), the Middle College program offers students an opportunity to complete their high school graduation requirements through a combination of SBCC dual enrollment courses and SBUSD independent study courses.

The mission of Middle College is to develop globally competent, critical thinkers who appreciate that their learning is not finite. The program integrates a rigorous independent study curriculum based on current events that is reviewed and evaluated during weekly student-teacher meetings. The independent study curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) English Language Arts (ELA) standards. The weekly meetings result in a positive one-on-one relationship between student and teacher. And the student benefits of this positive one-on-one relationships include academic and personal guidance and support.
