Building schools. Building skills. Building the future.


Some communities talk a good game about educational quality. In Borger, the quality is built in. The fired-up crowds at Borger Bulldogs sporting events have a lot to cheer about these days, starting with the Bulldogs’ impressive new multi-sport stadium featuring an eight-lane track and a football field convertible to soccer. And the stadium is just one of the host of improvements and expansions made possible by the recent passage of a $41 million bond issue. For Borger, educational quality means more than rhetoric; it means real investment.

Other exciting bond issue additions include an indoor practice facility adjacent to the stadium as well as new playground facilities at the elementary school, a new wing of state-of-the-art classrooms for the ninth grade, new fine arts classrooms, a new gym/auditorium, and a new agricultural science facility.

Graduates ready to build the world. College- and career-readiness are also more than buzzwords in the Borger Independent School system, where every year an average of 20 to 25 high school seniors graduate with two diplomas, having already earned their associates degrees at Frank Phillips College. Great teachers and solid curricula support this level of success, but so too does a great game plan, which for Borger high school students consists of five career tracks that include STEM, Multidisciplinary, Business and Industry, Public Services, and Arts and Humanities. The Career and Technical Education program also offers certifications like the recently added process technology.

Post-graduation, Borger students find their options continue to multiply at Frank Phillips College where 50 different courses of study lead to certification, Associate Arts Degrees (AAD), or Associate Sciences Degrees (ASD). While certification provides graduates with immediate employment opportunities, both the AAD and the ASD provide students with marketable skills as well as the academic credentials and readiness to continue their education at a four-year institution.

And in Borger, going farther in higher education doesn’t mean high mileage, with four institutions of higher education within a 150-mile radius, including:

  • Amarillo College, also offering excellent two-year degree programs.
  • West Texas A&M University, offering 58 different programs of study at the undergraduate, master’s, and Ph.D. levels. Lauded by organizations such as U.S. News and the Princeton Review, WTAMU is also a global leader in wind turbine research.
  • Clarendon College, offering another solid two-year option on an attractive 107-acre campus just 70 miles away.
  • Oklahoma Panhandle State University, offering two-year and four-year degree programs in three colleges: Arts and Education; Business and Technology; and Agriculture, Science and Nursing, including a leading agricultural sciences degree program.
