School Notes:

CRC is a private, two-year church affiliated, but autonomous, co-ed liberal arts college that provides a balanced course of studies appropriate for the first two years of college. CRC is located in Paragould, Arkansas, near the crest of Crowley's Ridge. The scenic campus covers 112 acres of rolling hills densely covered by pine trees. CRC was founded in 1964. For roughly its first decade, CRC operated under the same governing board as Crowley's Ridge Academy, a K-12 Christian academy established in 1953. In 1975, the two institutions legally separated and now operate under separate charters and boards. Crowley's Ridge College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association. The CRC Learning Center and Computer Lab is designed to make access to information for personal and scholastic use as easy as possible. The Learning Center is composed of two areas: the library stacks (including the Reading Room, Bible Room and Foyer) and computers (in the reading room, Learning Center computer lab and the tutorial lab in the Science Building).
