- The Clarendon Independent School Board purchased the college property and Clarendon College was re-established in 1927 as a non-sectarian junior college. The College was recognized by the Texas Education Agency and the Association of Texas Colleges and Universities in 1927. Clarendon College now operates from a beautiful 82-acre campus on the west edge of Clarendon. Eight counties comprise the College's service area. It is maintained, in part, by property taxes in the Clarendon College District (Donley County). The College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and schools and is one of 50 state-supported community colleges in the Texas system.
