College of the Mainland Unveils New League City Facility

(Texas City, Texas) — It was an epic occasion as community leaders, elected officials, and faculty, staff and students welcomed College of the Mainland’s (COM) newest educational facility to League City on November 12 during the college’s ribbon cutting ceremony.
Guests in attendance included COM President Dr. Warren Nichols, League City Mayor Pat Hallisey, Clear Creek ISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith, Senator Larry Taylor, and Representatives Greg Bonnen and Mayes Middleton.
The move marks an exciting time for the college to further its student reach across its service area as the League City region maintains an increasingly strong presence at COM through dual credit and other programs.
“What a great opportunity for young people,” said League City Mayor Pat Hallisey. “We are looking forward to the doors opening and our kids having the opportunity to be educated a little further than they would have been in high school.”
Featuring more than 27,570 square feet of remodeled learning space, the leased facility will house general education classes, a new 18-month accelerated associate of arts program and dual credit students attending League City high schools in Clear Creek ISD and Bay Area Christian School.
“I think this COM experience will provide a great jumping board for our students in our League City high schools,” Clear Creek ISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith said in an interview with i45NOW.
The new site, located at 1411 West Main Street in League City, will include eight classrooms, a computer lab, wet lab for biology instruction, and a testing center.
“We are very proud to unveil this new site and are grateful for the tremendous support we have received from our community leaders who helped make this venture possible,” said COM President Dr. Warren Nichols. “While we are excited about the new classrooms, expanded instructional capacity and upgraded equipment and resources that comes with this remodeled space, this signifies much more than just the physical growth of COM. This move demonstrates our committment to growing the opportunities for students to maximize their learning experiences in new and innovative ways.”
All expenses for the new facility, including lease, utilities and personnel, will be funded through tuition and fees brought in at the League City site. No bond monies or property taxes will be used to pay for the site.
