Berkeley Middle College High School

Keep Calm and Carry On!

A Message from Claire Freeman, Principal   Claire Freeman
Berkeley County Middle College High School

 
These are exciting times in the Berkeley County School District, and our students are ready for the new challenge and the wonderful opportunity that the Middle College provides for them to learn and achieve at the highest possible level. 
 
In the report, College Ready, commissioned by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we are reminded that “A high school diploma was once a ticket to the American Dream: a steady job that could launch a career, support a family, and raise a family’s living standard. Times have changed. In today’s world, a college diploma has become as important as a high school diploma used to be…higher education—whether a two- or four-year college, a technical school, or a certificate program---has emerged as the critical path to opportunity for students and the avenue to achieve their dreams.”  It is our joy to be able to help our students begin the transition into higher education and the realization of their hopes and dreams for the future.
 
It is an honor and privilege to find myself in the role of principal at the Middle College.  In addition to five years as principal and nine years of teaching experience, I have ten years of experience in managing grants, including three Learn and Serve grants, one Workforce Investment Act grant, and one Smaller Learning Communities grant, as well as an EEDA grant received for Star Academy.
 
Our teaching staff is one of the most talented and dedicated that I've ever had the pleasure to work with.  I know I speak for each of them when I say that we are incredibly proud of the efforts of each of our students, who hail from our district's seven comprehensive high schools and who had to undergo a rigorous application process, including a personal interview.  
 
Come visit us sometime. Our main office number is 843-899-8111, and we would be pleased to show members community members and prospective students and their parents around anytime. I may be reached through email at freemacl@bcsdschools.net
