Earlier this year, Arapahoe Community College received a donation of up to $10 million from the Sturm Family Foundation, and is now set to open its new industry-aligned higher education “collaboration campus” here in Castle Rock this month.
The Arapahoe Community College Sturm Collaboration Campus at Castle Rock (ACC Castle Rock for short) will host a grand opening on Friday, August 16. All community members are welcome to come and meet faculty, staff, and education/industry partners while experiencing an interactive tour of this exciting new development. The festivities will occur at 4500 Limelight Avenue, with the ribbon cutting to be held at 2:30 P.M.
The Arapahoe Community College Sturm Collaboration Campus at Castle Rock is a partnership among the Town of Castle Rock, Arapahoe Community College, and Colorado State University, with the intention to provide students with a smooth route from high school to associate’s degree to bachelor’s degree. ACC Castle Rock is a collaborative learning model that features applied learning and targeted workforce training in specific industries, including health, technology, and business. Classes at the new campus begin on August 19. There’s no need to register for the grand opening, but if you’d like more information about enrolling in classes, click here.
