    The Jackson Middle College High School program is JPS' newest Advanced Academic program. This program features a partnership with Jackson State University to establish a "Grow-Your-Own" Mathematics Educator development component, allowing participants to complete the first two years of college while in high school (tuition-free). The Middle College is for highly motivated, disciplined, rising 11th-grade scholars interested in Mathematics.  JMC scholars will work to meet all teacher licensure requirements before returning to teach for JPS for a minimum of three years.
