A High-Tech Campus
Highland is anchored by Austin Community College’s adaptive reuse of the former Highland Mall building, a 1.3 million square-foot high-tech campus designed to create new educational and job training opportunities for students, the community and neighboring businesses.
Purpose-built to exceed expectations and reimagine learning, Highland ACC is breaking barriers. As a political subdivision of the State of Texas and as an entity that touches six counties, more than eight cities, and about two dozen school districts, ACC works collaboratively with business and industry leaders to help the capital region meet its diverse and growing workforce needs.
