ACC Hays Groundbreaking Celebration
The community is invited to a groundbreaking celebration for Austin Community College’s new Hays Campus at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 27. The event – featuring live music, a college fair, and refreshments – will be at the Hays CISD Performing Arts Center (979 Kohlers Crossing in Kyle), across from the future campus site.
“ACC is extremely proud to serve in a community that values the education of its citizens,” says Dr. Richard Rhodes, ACC president/CEO. “Through the partnership between ACC and Hays CISD residents, the area gains critical access to affordable higher education and career training opportunities that benefit everyone.”
Construction of a college campus follows annexation of Hays CISD into the ACC District. Residents approved annexation in 2010, becoming eligible for ACC’s in-district tuition rate and paving the way for the new campus.
The Hays Campus will be located on 98 acres at Kohlers Crossing and Kyle Parkway. The three-story structure will accommodate up to 2,000 students and offer core curriculum/academic transfer courses and career education in specialized business programs, computer networking and security, child development, and more. Construction begins later this summer.
ACC is an open-door institution, with everyone meeting eligibility criteria encouraged to enroll. Hays CISD Residents already enjoy the benefits of in-district tuition. Visit the Destination: ACC webpage to apply for college and begin taking classes.
