The Wexford-Missaukee Early College (WMEC) is a 3 year program serving students who attend public school districts within the Wexford-Missaukee ISD (WMISD), or partnering high schools, and choose to attend the Wexford-Missaukee Career Technical Center (CTC) and enroll in an Early College aligned program.

Students who enroll in the WMEC are committing to an additional (13th) year of high school and do not receive their high school diploma until the end of the 13th year. During grades 11-13, students participate in an integrated sequence of high school and college courses, which lead toward a specific Associate Degree and/or Certificate that aligns with their selected Career Technical Center program.

There is no out of pocket cost to students for tuition, books and fees during the 3 year program. Students can earn up to an Associate’s Degree or Certificate in the aligned programs.
