The center’s upgrades include 2 projection systems with recessed ceiling speakers in a classroom and the computer lab. The computer lab also received 8 additional computers wired for internet access and 2 large screen televisions were donated for the lobby and window advertisements.


Located inside of La Palmera mall, Coastal Compass exists to provide all residents of the Coastal Bend with free assistance regarding education and career training. The center sees an average of 600,000 visitors a month and provides services that include enrollment assistance, adult literacy and ESL programs, GED preparation, aptitude testing, information about certification and skills training programs, job placement and career services for veterans.

Coastal Compass invites persons of all ages to visit the facilities and enjoy free wi-fi internet access provided by the City of Corpus Christi while getting to know advisors from area schools. All services at the center are completely free and require no commitment.

The facilities may also be used at the request of individuals hosting seminars or workshops that are education or career related and the event will be advertised on the center’s website, newsletter and social media pages.
