Crowley's Ridge College began in 1964. Its spiritual origins, if not its direct lineage, go back to two earlier institutions in the area, MONEA Christian College, in Rector, Arkansas, and Croft College, which was located in rural Greene County, Arkansas, both of which were defunct by the end of the 1930s.The school achieved a major milestone in 2000 when it was formally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and was included in membership in the North Central Association. In addition to three Associate Level Degrees, the college offers degrees at the baccalaureate level in Business Administration and Biblical Studies.


The 150-acre (0.61 km2) campus is located atop the namesake geographic feature, Crowley's Ridge, one of the main terrain features of Eastern Arkansas. The pine tree covered campus has a lake at the center of campus. There are eight buildings, containing 85,000 square feet (7,900 m2), located on the college campus that is located on Highway 412 at the western city limits of Paragould, AR.


The "Pioneers" have competed in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) (Division 1) since 2008. Intercollegiate sports activities include, men's basketball, baseball, and soccer, women's basketball, volleyball, and softball.
