This facility will include flexible, multi-use classrooms, science and technical labs, automotive technology center, computer centers, a fitness center/weight room, student lounge, community meeting rooms, a student services center, bookstore, and office/staff space.

In addition to providing direct training programs, the West Fresno satellite campus will serve as a Magnet Core for hosting coordinated community engagement and benefit efforts by government and neighborhood agencies.
