Middle College

careerstart logo The Middle College is now CareerStart

The Middle College enjoyed a long history of helping students achieve GED success and continue onto better employment and educational opportunities.  Now, as a member of the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA), we have changed our name to CareerStart to show our change in focus from straight-up GED preparation to a robust work-readiness training program.  

 Short-term job training is integrated with academic and soft skills support to provide individuals who have a GED or High School diploma, as well as for those who need to finish a GED, the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials.

These programs are funded through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act, the Virginia Department of Social Services' Road to Success in Virginia (RSVP) Initiative, Capital One, Virginia Credit Union and other grant sources.
