|Who may establish (charter, LEA, etc.)|
|California||Local school district. A charter school in some cases acts as an LEA and as such, could establish a middle college high school, but to date no charter has established a charter middle college high school.|
|Colorado||Eligible district in cooperation with at least one two-year institution, area vocational school, or junior college that is part of a junior college district.|
|Michigan||School district, intermediate school district, or charter school ("public school academy")|
|North Carolina||LEA and at least one local board of trustees (of a community college, "constituent institution of the University of North Carolina, or private college located in North Carolina.")|
|Pennsylvania||District or an area vocational-technical school and at least one nonprofit two- or four-year public or private college or university, or an eligible private licensed school approved to operate in the state.|
While charter, private, nonpublic or home schools may not enter into partnerships with postsecondary institutions to create early/middle college programs, a student enrolled in any of these options and who meets entry criteria may enroll in concurrent courses that are part of a concurrent enrollment program in the student's district of residence or the area vocational-technical school.
|Tennessee||LEA in cooperation with at least one public postsecondary institution|
|Texas||District or open-enrollment charter school|
