Students who attend the Middle College at Bossier Parish Community College will receive their diplomas this week.

The graduation will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 14 inside Bldg C at the BPCC Performing Arts Theatre on 6220 E Texas St.

The BPCC Middle College program is designed to prepare students, who did not graduate from high school, to pass the HiSet exam in order to earn their high school equivalency diploma and enroll in college.

BPCC Chancellor Jim Henderson said, "Not only is the BPCC Middle College program a model for student success, the students, many of whom are first-generation college students, are inspired to advance to the next phase of higher education."

The program helps students identify a plan for their lives beyond a high school diploma. All of the classes require students to think, learn and study on a post-secondary educational level. With multiple sessions per year, students can choose from morning, afternoon or evening classes.
