This school, formed to provide a Christian education for all grade levels, was founded in 1906 by A.B. Barret, an early educator and preacher for Texas Churches of Christ. It was first called Childers Classical Institute in honor of Col. J.W. Childers, who deeded his homesite at North First and Victoria Streets for use as a campus. Early expansion of the institution began in 1912 with the 12-year presidency of Jesse P. Sewell. In 1920 it became Abilene Christian College and nine years later was moved to new facilities here. The present name was adopted in 1976.
