Lone Star College System celebrated the groundbreaking of its newest campus, LSC-Houston North Fallbrook, on Nov. 6, according to a press release.

Located on the campus of Fallbrook Church, 12512 Walters Road, Houston, LSC-Houston North Fallbrook is slated to open in fall 2020 and will be part of LSC-Houston North, which is LSC’s newest college.

“This partnership between Lone Star College and Fallbrook Church is a shining example of what can happen when institutions work together,” LSC Chancellor Stephen Head said in a statement. “I want to personally thank Pastor Michael Pender for his commitment to provide accessible higher education in this community.”

LSC-Houston North also encompasses LSC-Houston North Fairbanks, LSC-Houston North Greenspoint and LSC-Houston North Victory.

The campus will offer morning, afternoon and evening courses as well as weekend programs for students working toward an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree.


“This is a great day, not only for Lone Star college, but for this community as well,” LSC-North Houston President Quentin A. Wright said in a statement. “These students will be able to take advantage of small class sizes with no class having more than 20 students.”

Elected officials in attendance included U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston; Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner; and state Rep. Jarvis Johnson, D-Houston, as well as a variety of LSCS officials and Fallbrook Church Pastor Michael Pender.

“Thank you Dr. Head for your commitment to young people,” Pender said in a statement. “You are helping to break new ground for our youth.”
