PHILADELPHIA – While most Philadelphia students are enjoying summer break, 130 freshmen scholars entering Parkway Center City Middle College (PCCMC) already are hitting the books and delving into the mysteries of history, diversity, political and social philosophy and more.

The rising ninth graders arrived on Community College of Philadelphia (CCP)’s Main Campus on July 9, where they are enrolled in the Summer Bridge Program, and taking one college class each. They are the third cohort from Middle College to take the five-week summer program, where scholars also are engaged in programming that fosters the development of their critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. In addition, PCCMC scholars receive advice and insights on how to succeed in College.

“At Community College of Philadelphia, we play an important role in diversifying the pipeline of highly skilled workers,” CCP President Dr. Donald Guy Generals said. “This is one of many ways we accelerate career and transfer opportunities and make college more accessible.”

The city’s first Middle College program is a partnership between the School District of Philadelphia and Community College of Philadelphia. Graduates of Parkway Center City Middle College will be able to earn an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts or a Certificate in Entrepreneurship or Computer Programming and Software Development before they actually earn their high school diploma. This year, 2,500 students applied for admittance to the Middle College, where there are 380 students enrolled in 9th through 11th grades.


WHEN & WHERE: Thursday, July 25
8:15 a.m., Community College of Philadelphia (outside the Pavilion: Winnet Building)

People of the College

I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
