Three of the classrooms will be slightly more than 600 square feet, while one large classroom will be 900 square feet in area. There also will be to two iTV classrooms – a 450-square-foot area and another slightly smaller at 360 square feet.
Students will be able to access the Internet through computer labs and wireless signal at the new center.
An array of classes will be provided at the location, including degree and certificate programs, community education classes, continuing education and training offerings, and GED courses.
The center is located in the heart of one of the fastest growing parts of Pinal County along the Hunt Highway corridor, stretching from Queen Creek in Maricopa County through the San Tan Mountains region to the burgeoning multi-generational community of Anthem.
The large neighborhood of Johnson Ranch, along with other developments such as Copper Basin and Magic Ranch, are all within a short drive of the new facility.
