PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mildred Elley Pittsfield is one of the first new tenants of the former KB Toys building at 100 West St.  

The career-training school announced on Thursday during an event for faculty, staff, students and community partners that it is relocating its campus by early 2013. The move is not expected to affect the current class schedule and officials said it "will be seamless for all students."
 
"This is a win-win situation for both our students and the community, said Faith Takes, president of Empire Education Corp. and Mildred Elley. "This will allow us to expand our campus and provide a state-of-the-art learning environment for our students. This relocation will also assist in the revitalization of the downtown Pittsfield corridor. Our students, staff and faculty will be spending money downtown which will provide an economic boost to the downtown businesses."

Mildred Elley Pittsfield and its more than 200 students are currently located at St. Luke's Square, a plaza at the corner of Elm and East Main Street. The KB building, vacant since the company went under, was purchased by Laurin Publishing in April.
 
"We are extremely excited about this upcoming move," said Lori Houlihan, campus president of Mildred Elley Pittsfield. "The building will have new medical labs, a model day-care room, and updated facilities to meet the needs of our students. This is a time of growth and opportunity for our campus and our students and we are so pleased to be a part of providing a quality education to individuals in the Berkshire community."
 
Mildred Elley was founded in 1991, renting space in St. Mark's School, and had worked in conjunction with the Berkshire Training and Employment Program (now BerkshireWorks) to establish a medical assisting program for displaced workers. The Pittsfield campus opened its doors with 30 students. Today, it offers nine programs in six academic areas. Students from the Pittsfield campus are also eligible to transfer to the Albany campus to earn associate's degrees.
