The Middle College at Bennett
Located on the campus of Bennett College, the Middle College at Bennett has the distinction of being one of only two all-female high schools in the state of North Carolina. It began in 2003 as a middle college serving female 11th and 12th grade students who were at-risk of dropping out of high school. By 2006, with the help of The New Schools Project Reform Initiative, The Middle College at Bennett expanded its population to include 9th and 10th graders and began offering dual enrollment. With dual enrollment, students take college courses and earn transferrable college credit as they earn their high school diploma. Students begin taking college courses their 11th grade year and may earn up to 2 years of transferrable college credit hours upon completion of their senior year.
