LMC Early College not only saves families money, but also offers an early glimpse into college life by helping students gain independence, sharpen study and time management skills, and creates a smoother transition into their next chapter. Early College allows students to develop interests and talents by exploring a myriad of subjects that may not be not offered in the high school curriculum. LMC partners with more than 50 area high schools, home schools, and technical education centers in Allegan, Berrien, Cass, Ottawa and Van Buren Counties.
Early College courses are offered to students while they are still in high school. Students earn both high school and college credit for courses, saving families thousands of dollars in college tuition. Lake Michigan College offers dual credit, dual enrollment and early/middle college options. Read about each option below. Early College is open to homeschool students.
