Land adjacent to Hendrix College has been developed into The Village at Hendrix, a New Urbanist neighborhood featuring the Hendrix Creek Preserve, a unique ecological and recreational space.

Conway Public School District

With more than 9,400 students in 15 schools, Conway Public School District is the eighth largest in Arkansas. The district has nine elementary schools that serve grades kindergarten-fourth grade, four middle schools for grades five-seven, one junior high school for grades eight-nine and one high school for grades 10-12.

Students at Conway High School-West began the school year in a new, three-story, classroom building. The 165,000-SF structure is the first phase of a $40 million reconstruction project for Conway High School-West. The new facility is more than twice the size of the former high school building, providing additional space for classrooms, science laboratories, offices and a lecture hall.

The school year also marked the opening of the Carolyn Lewis Elementary School. The new, $15 million facility is located on Old Military Road.

More than 90 percent of St. Joseph’s graduates pursue higher education at universities nationwide and through specialized training institutes in various industries. The school is accredited by Arkansas Non-Public School Accrediting Association and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association.

Conway Christian School

Conway Christian School provides a comprehensive education for more than 500 students in preschool-12th grade. Representing more than 65 churches, the school strives to provide an environment where students can grow spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
