A unique partnership
The Blue Water Middle College (BWMC) is chartered by the St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA). It reflects a unique partnership between RESA, St. Clair County Community College (SC4), and six county school districts: Algonac, Capac, Memphis, Port Huron, Virtual Learning Academy and Yale.
Students take their high school courses at one of the partnering high schools. Their college courses are taken at SC4.
Students enrolling in the BWMC become students of the middle college. Still, they are allowed to play sports and participate in normal extracurricular activities at their local high school through agreements between the middle college and the local districts.
