Dr. Erin Craig
Erin McKenzie Craig, Ed.D. in partnership with Oakland-based nonprofit corporation Unity Schools, seek to establish and operate Unity Middle College High School, a public charter high school serving grades 9-12 within the Orange Unified School District boundaries.
Unity Middle College High
School (Unity MCHS) will use the demonstrably successful model of the
Middle College National Consortium schools blended with Unity Schools’
educational philosophy as a guiding framework in the establishment of Unity
MCHS. Unity MCHS will build upon the
success and lessons learned from OUHS’ ten years of achievement and service to
East Oakland families, with modifications made to best serve the needs of
at-risk high school students in Orange County.
Unity Middle College High School prepares all students including this who are at-risk and underserved for four-year university success, leading to professional careers through a blended high school/college curriculum.
College High School (Unity MCHS) achieves this mission by offering
project-based learning, dual enrollment and early college experiences, and
differentiated support through a nurturing, family based school culture. Unity MCHS is structured on the Middle
College National Consortium Design Principles with career pathways available to
all students. Unity MCHS career pathways
will provide students high school and college courses, internships, and
hands-on experience directly aligned to each student’s career pathway of choice and post-secondary plans.
