10+ Year Member Spotlight- Crowley's Ridge Academy

Crowley's Ridge Academy is a 10+ Year Member of the Paragould Regional Chamber of Commerce!

Crowley's Ridge Academy (CRA) is a private Christian school serving students in preschool through 12th grade. CRA is fully accredited by the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association and offers a rigorous college preparatory educational experience. 

Founded in 1953, CRA prides itself in providing an affordable Christian education that "builds leaders and builds followers." CRA builds leaders through its challenging academic programs and by providing opportunities for students to serve one another and the community. At the heart of the school's mission, however, is "building followers" - nurturing discipleship within the heart of each student through daily Bible study, worship, and a campus culture of Christian values and examples.

With a K-12 enrollment of just 265, students aren't lost in a sea of faces. CRA's setting hearkens back to an earlier era of small schools where everyone knew each other's families, and school was a place of familial connection. At CRA, they're small enough make sure every student receives the attention they deserve, and yet large enough to offer many opportunities to engage in a variety of sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities.
