Having lived and attended schools throughout the nation I am happy to say that I am grateful for the education system in Arkansas City! We have choices to meet the individual temperament of our children; ones that also help parents to contribute to the community while at the same time guiding the growth of their child.

Arkansas City Christian Academy (ACCA) lives out its mission of equipping children as Christian leaders by providing its students with a Christ-centered, nurturing and well-rounded education. The small class size allow the instructors to not only give individualized attention to students, but to also have personal relationships with each student as well. This school has been such a blessing to our family and we would encourage others to consider choosing ACCA for their child’s education.

Each year hundreds of Cowley College students earn their associate’s degree and transfer to colleges and universities across the country. Hundreds more enter the workforce after completing career-ready programs.
Cowley College is a leader in higher education in Kansas since its founding in 1922 and continues to help local employers train workers and provide career-tech instruction for high school students. Recognized as one of the top community colleges in the country for student success, and top athletic programs that lure students from across the country and globe, the college provides a valuable experience at an affordable price.
The main campus, in downtown Arkansas City, is a cultural hub anchored by the Brown Center, which hosts performing and fine arts activities and is the go-to venue for community programs and events. The community and the college enjoy a great relationship demonstrated by an active Tiger Booster Club, as well as student, faculty and administration participation in clubs, festivals and charities.
Cowley College was a great choice for me when I decided to further my education. The smaller class size, affordable cost, community feel and nice facilities all made the decision to attend Cowley an easy choice for me that I would recommend to others again and again. It’s places like Cowley College that help make the Ark City community a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.
