It is conveniently located near the District and ideal for working professionals looking to further their career through education.

Simultaneously, the Lone Star College-Montgomery provides academic transfer courses and corporate and workforce training programs. One of their workforce training centers occupies more than 83,000 square feet of classroom, lab and hands-on learning space in two separate buildings. In addition to advising and registration services, the center also has an on-site bookstore, testing center, library, and multipurpose room. Plus, since it is based in a large industrial park, the facility is the perfect location for customized corporate training via Lone Star Corporate College, the college’s corporate training entity.  As such, the Center has partnered with many of the area’s manufacturing and service companies to provide ongoing workforce support in order to meet the needs of local businesses.
