Van Buren Technology Center

 Van Buren Middle College 
On June 25, 2015, the Van Buren Technology Center was informed by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) that we have been APPROVED to become an Early Middle College Program!  This will mean several things.
  • The name of the program will change from the Van Buren Early College to the Van Buren Middle College.
  • Students who have been accepted into the program for this Fall (will be Juniors at their local high schools) will have the option to remain as Van Buren Early College students or can choose to become Van Buren Middle College students.  There will be a student/parent meeting on Monday, September 28, in the evening to explain this option, invitations will be mailed to parents/students later this summer.
  • Students who will be high school Sophomores in the Fall will be recruited as Van Buren Middle College students only.  Students will learn more about the Van Buren Middle College during 10th grade visits, presentations about the Van Buren Middle College at their high school in the Winter, and promotional materials provided to local high school counselors in the Winter.
