The Keith Bell Opportunity Central
Nicknamed “The OC,” the building offers a new concept for career and college instruction that also engages the community through life-long learning, special events, wellness activities, business partnerships and more. The OC serves Forney ISD students during school hours and remains open on evening and weekends for college and community activities.
The OC features eateries, retail and services that are supported by students. Flexible and technology-rich learning space supports a range of CTE programs, dual-credit programs and college coursework. Co-working space is located on the first floor while the second and third floors feature classrooms, labs and multi-purpose instructional space. An arena is located at the heart of the facility and features retractable seating on the first and second floors, along with instructional space on the third floor that overlooks the venue. Several spaces overlook the “front yard,” a green space that features a paved plaza, rolling hills and an outdoor venue.
