The purpose of the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency Learning Center, as a full service facility, is to provide our customers the ultimate learning environment with state-of-the-art equipment, technical expertise and quality customer service in a supportive and comfortable climate.
In an effort to more fully satisfy our customers’ needs, the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency has a full-service Learning Center that provides staff development, school improvement, and other meeting needs of our customers.
The Mississippi Bend AEA Learning Center was designed with our customers’ needs in mind. Four large handicap accessible rooms will seat up to seventy people and break away walls allow for a combination of rooms for seating up to 400 people. Telephones and a copy machine are located in the Center’s lobby, and the Learning Center Staff is always available to assist with any last minute details.

The ICN room allows video conferences with over 600 locations throughout the state. The Technology Teaching Center provides state-of-the-art technology to accompany hands-on work shops.
