Middle School Certification Standards

February 2023 | Linked Learning Alliance

Linked Learning Middle School Standards represent an extension of the evidence-based Linked Learning standards for high-quality college and career preparation. Designed to engage students in real-world learning experiences connecting core academics to career awareness and exploration, the Linked Learning Middle School Standards will prepare students to succeed in high school and beyond.

The standards provide educators with a framework for middle school college and career preparation aligned to high school Linked Learning pathways and the rigorous academic expectations of a college prep curriculum, setting the stage for high school and postsecondary success.
