In Progress

quality Early Childhood Opportunities

Midland College is helping to address two critical challenges in our community - shortage of quality early childhood opportunities and a shortage of teachers in Midland and surrounding West Texas communities. This new building will open in Fall 2023.

The  project will allow MC to expand its existing Pre-Kindergarten Academy from 68 seats to 288 seats, thereby fulfilling a dire need in the community for quality pre-k education.

The new building will also provide a home for Midland College's new Early Childhood Education bachelor's degree program.

The new building will be located at the northeast  corner of the intersection of Chaparral Circle and S. Foundation Drive, in the southeast quarter of MC's main campus.

Ongoing Project

Kicking-off in June 2022, the re-paving of Chaparral Circle Drive continues at the main campus. Where work is underway, both lanes of the the circle will be blocked-off.

The first stage of this project started at Marie Hall Academic Building (MHAB) and proceed to the most eastern parking lot of Allison Fine Arts Building (AFA). Since then, it has expanded to the Pevehouse Administration Building (PAD). Parking lots for AFA are closed.
