RACC to open satellite location at Wilson school

College to offer both hybrid, traditional classes

READING, Pa. - Reading Area Community College is growing beyond the city's borders.

RACC announced Wednesday that it will open a satellite location at Wilson Southern Middle School in Spring Township.

Starting in late August, RACC will offer hybrid (combined face-to-face and online) and traditional classes Monday through Thursday, during the late-afternoon and early-evening hours.

"We will have a variety of general education classes to offer students in accelerated, seven-week formats, with most of the classes being eligible to transfer to a four-year institution," said Susan Looney, RACC's senior vice president of academic affairs/provost. "We look forward to being a good academic neighbor to the Sinking Spring community by extending easy access to a quality education."

RACC officials said the selection of Wilson Southern is the result of an ongoing search for additional instructional locations. They added that the school is an ideal location to extend the college's academic footprint into the community.

"Our market research indicates there is a demand for college level instruction outside of our main campus site," said Anna Weitz, RACC's president. "The Sinking Spring location gives us the opportunity to advance our mission to enhance the educational opportunities and bring the classroom to our residents."

Wilson Southern Middle School is located at 3100 Iroquois Avenue.
