Taft Junior College was established in 1922 as a single-campus district. The district contains 735 square miles and is composed of the elementary school districts of Taft City, Midway, McKittrick, Elk Hills and the Maricopa. Taft College has embarked on an ambitious modernization and construction project that will completely transform the campus. Virtually every existing campus building will be affected. Some buildings will be demolished to make way for new buildings; others will be remodeled to make them more efficient and attractive.
