Gary Middle College (GMC) is a tuition-free, public charter school that serves adult students above the age of 16. Gary Middle College operates from 8:00AM--8:00PM. GMC is a different kind of school; we seek to meet the needs of students who have experienced the kinds of challenges in their life that make earning a high school diploma in a traditional setting difficult. At GMC, we provide students, regardless of life circumstances or previous academic struggle, an high school program that is rigorous, individualized and supportive. Through our partnership with Ivy Tech Community College GMC students are also able to take courses at Ivy Tech Community college that are dual credit--meaning the courses will count towards the high school diploma and count as a college credit, all at no cost to the student. Students who attend GMC will graduate with a Core-40 High School diploma and up to 60 college credits and their associate’s degree.
