GHS Academic Programs
Since the State of Michigan now has mandatory statewide graduation requirements (Michigan Merit Curriculum), requirements depend on the student's year of graduation. All Michigan public high school students must now meet the new (and very strict!) state requirements to get a diploma. Starting with the class of 2016, two years of a foreign language are required for graduation.
(taking college classes for high school and college credit): Dual Enrollment is an option for juniors and seniors who have met test score requirements and are on track to graduate on time. There is more information on the Course Scheduling page and in your Academic Planning Guide. Students who are interested in Dual Enrollment for next year should plan to attend a meeting with MCC which will be announced soon. Sign up in the Counseling Office.

- MCC Course Search
Students interested in Dual Enrollment should look at MCC offerings for classes that interest them. Make sure the first box says Fall, 2016 to get correct information. Pay attention to time and location, as students have to provide their own transportation to college classes.
- Steps to Dual Enrollment
Once a junior or senior has qualified to take Dual Enrollment (college) classes, these steps must be followed to enroll in classes at MCC.
