In fall of 2015, Metro began a new pilot high school. This new addition to the Metro family is called MIT – Metro Institute of Technology. MIT was developed through a partnership with Franklin University and Columbus State Community College. MIT is Located on the 2nd Floor of Philips Hall (303 S. Grant Ave.) on the Franklin University campus. This is an exciting endeavor because it provides new possibilities for Metro students and families.
Expansion has allowed Metro to extend our reach to more families. As a newly designated STEM School within the state of Ohio, MIT offers a rigorous curriculum, while enhancing the quantity and quality of 21st century leadership skills we offer our students.
MIT is a 5-year program that affords students the opportunity to earn stackable credentials, including an associate’s degree within the career pathways below:
- Computer Science
- Engineering Technologies/Manufacturing
- Multi-Skilled Health
- And more…
