Corn Bible Academy Proceeds With Relocation

Corn, OKLA –Directors of Corn Bible Academy have announced that they are proceeding with plans to relocate the 113-year-old school from Corn to a site adjacent to Western Oklahoma Christian School on the south side of Clinton. Groundbreaking is anticipated in approximately six months with hopes to be in the new building by midterm of the 2016-17 school year.
CBA educates students in grades 7-12 and complements the pre-k through grade 6 education provided by WOCS. The move will make available to parents of students in pre-k through grade 12 a Christian education at one site which is centrally located for the population of west central Oklahoma. The new building will be located southwest of the Clinton Cemetery and will face toward S. 28th Street. Building God’s Way, an architectural and construction firm with extensive experience in church and Christian school construction, has been hired to design the new complex and has submitted preliminary drawings.
The announcement comes as CBA has attained almost a third of its $10-million fund-raising goal which is divided into three phases. The first phase of $7 million is for the classroom and gymnasium facility. The second phase of $1 million is for a shop, fieldhouse and ball fields. The final phase is to fund an endowment for stability and future growth. More information can be found at the website www.growcba.org.
