C.R.A. is the most wonderful school and it is a blessing to have an institution of its quality in our community.

Dale Horn is a wonderful person. I can honestly say that CRA has been blessed by the work he has done over the past 13 years. I think Frank Harris will also do a wonderful job. The Academy is a very special place. My days as a student there were wonderful. My kids love going to school at CRA and it because of the caring and loving faculty that is second to none.

Easily the best school that I ever attended. I made so many friends and the teachers were wonderful. If you are looking for a Christian atmosphere where academics are stressed Crowley's Ridge Academy is the school for you. I would not be the person I am today without CRA.

One of the best schools in the state of Arkansas. Their atheletic program is consistently above par and their academics are always rated the highest in the state. If you are looking for a place to send your kids so they can grow spiritually, mentally, and physically Crowley's Ridge Academy is the place for you.

My daughter and son both began CRA in the fifth grade. It is a great school with great role models where bible is taught and prayer is encouraged. I can not express what this school has done for my family. God has truely blessed us and I would recommend CRA to anyone.

We moved here from out of state 2 years ago. This school has been the best part of the move. My son not only loves school, but he is excelling in an environment that seems to build lasting friendships. What initially attracted us to the school were its great test scores, and those continue to impress. The education and environment are outstanding.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
