Dual credit and post-secondary options to earn credit are opportunities that MMSD encourages ALL students to take advantage of.  

What is Dual Credit?

Dual credit means earning both high school and college credit simultaneously.  These programs may occur within the high school facility or at post-secondary or off-site locations.  Each program has its own nuances.  

What types of Dual Credit and Post-Secondary Options are available?

Currently, the following programs are available to MMSD students (see individual pages for more specifics):

    • Dual/transcripted Courses through Madison College
    • Gateway to College
    • Middle College
    • Early College Credit Options

What is an Industry Certification?

Industry Certifications are highly-valued certifications where individuals are assessed through independent, third-party exams using predetermined standards for knowledge, skills and competencies, resulting in the award of a credential that is recognized by a chosen industry or field as proving preparedness for entering that industry or field.   See the Industry Certification page for specific certifications offered to students in MMSD.
