The Office of School Relations is the College’s liaison to the K-12 school districts. Middlesex County College provides academic and career development programs for students and professional development workshops for teachers. For middle and high school students, the Office of School Relations offers academic enrichment and career exploration programs such as High School Scholars, Algebra Summer Institute, and Biotechnology Summer Institute.
For teachers, professional development opportunities include in-district customized workshops to meet the needs of local schools, on-campus workshops to increase content knowledge and assist in the integration of the Common Core Standards, and summer institutes for Advanced Placement teachers.
For those interested in becoming a teacher, School Relations offers the New Pathways to Teaching in NJ (NPTNJ) program. New Pathways takes teacher candidates through the process of certification and includes ‘Introduction to the Teaching Profession: 24-Hour Course’ required by the NJ Department of Education in order to receive a Certificate of Eligibility (CE) to teach grades K-12. Once teacher candidates receive a CE, New Pathways offers the 200-hours of study required of all alternate route teachers.
For information on any of the programs listed, please call 732.906.2554 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
High school students may take college courses for credit if they have completed the prerequisites that the courses require. To register for a course, all students must complete the “High School Scholars” application (available online), have the recommendation of their school guidance counselor, and parental permission.
Students may attend classes on the Middlesex County College campus or at the New Brunswick and Perth Amboy Centers. High schools may partner with Middlesex County College to provide dual enrollment courses during the regular school day. Where there is sufficient interest, courses may be offered on the school premises after regular school hours.
For on-campus courses, students pay full tuition and fees. For courses taken in-district during the regular school day, students pay $200 per course. For more information, call 732.906.2554 or email email@example.com.
