Enrollment for the upcoming school year at Bristol Community College’s new satellite learning center in the former Taunton Catholic Middle School is expected to exceed that of the past year.
“We’re very confident we’ll surpass that number,” said Benjamin Baumann, registrar for Fall River-based BCC, which also offers programs in New Bedford and Attleboro.
Friday marked the official ribbon-cutting for BCC’s new Taunton site.
During the past year, the community college had provided day classes at the old Cohannet School building, where it shared space with the school department’s Taunton Alternative High School program. BCC had also offered night classes at Benjamin A. Friedman Middle School.
