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 Christian School is accredited by Arkansas Non-Public School Accrediting Association and Christian Schools International and its preschool is state licensed.

University of Central Arkansas

UCA offers 136 academic programs, including 80 undergraduate programs, 31 master’s programs and five doctoral degree programs. Faculty and students are involved in the larger community in a variety of ways beneficial to both Conway and the university.

With an enrollment of more than 11,000, UCA’s student body represents 61 countries, 42 states and each county in Arkansas.

Campus life outside academics includes more than 200 student organizations; 15 intramural sports activities; a 72,000-SF health, physical education and recreation (HPER) center with plans for expansion; NCAA Division I athletics; appearances by nationally known performers, minority and international student programs, theater and art productions, and much more.

Hendrix College

Hendrix College is a national leader engaged in liberal arts and sciences education. With nearly 1,500 students from more than 40 states and many foreign countries, Hendrix is nationally recognized for its innovative curriculum and opportunities for unique engaged learning experiences through Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning.

Hendrix recently completed a $100 million comprehensive campaign — the largest fundraising effort in the College’s 135-year history.

Through the campaign, Hendrix significantly increased student financial assistance; endowed academic, co-curricular and student life programs that have become national models in American higher education; and completed state-of-the-art campus facilities, including a new wellness and athletics center and student life and technology center.

In addition to the impact of its faculty, staff and students on the local economy, Hendrix has developed land adjacent to campus into The Village at Hendrix, a New Urbanist neighborhood featuring mixed-use (residential and commercial) spaces.

The Village also provides public green space for community events and new dining, retail and employment opportunities. Hendrix Creek Preserve, a beautiful and one-of-a-kind ecological, educational and recreational space, is open to Village residents and the public.

At no cost, the community can also enjoy all of Hendrix College’s artistic, athletic and cultural entertainment events on the beautiful campus in the center of Conway.
