Groundbreaking DCCC Southeastern Campus

Delaware County Public Relations Office

Delaware County Community College had a groundbreaking ceremony this week for its new community-centered, state-of-the-art Southeastern campus at the former Archbishop Prendergast High School in Drexel Hill.

The College is transforming the former High School at Garrett Road and North Lansdowne Avenue into a comprehensive multi-use facility that will provide affordable, quality education and training to area residents in an easily accessible location. 

The College is renovating the 80,000-square-foot, main building along with a 30,000-square-foot new annex that will transform a seven and a half-acre portion of the 35-acre property into a full-service campus featuring academic and career training programs in high-priority occupations, including Allied Health, Biotechnology and Electronics, Early Childhood Education, Skilled Trades, including Carpentry, and more. 

The new campus will also include a Center for Workforce Development and Community Success, which will serve as a center of innovation for workforce training, a 17,000-square-foot Early Childhood Education Center that will provide much-needed childcare for both students and residents, as well as a learning lab for students in the College’s Early Childhood Education programs. The estimated project completion date is 2025.
