Corn Bible Academy is a Christian junior high and high school located in Corn, a small town in western Oklahoma. The fifth oldest Christian school in the U.S. and the oldest west of the Mississippi River, the school attracts students from the local area and around the world. In 2016, the Board of Directors of Corn Bible Academy decided to relocate and expand beyond current facilities to serve a student population of more than 200. This represents growth of more than 250% to position CBA to both expand it’s programming and grow the school’s competitiveness across all measures.

This beautiful new facility will feature a gymnasium with one main basketball court and two practice courts along with a volleyball court and locker rooms. The gym can been seen and accessed from the school cafeteria. The cafeteria will be a multi-purpose room which can expand into event space when needed.

The large music hall will serve as a practice area for the school orchestra and choir. Splay walls and ceiling clouds with acoustical insulation will aid in sound quality. Computer, biology and chemistry labs will be located just down the hall. The library is designed to have a light and fun atmosphere with bulbous hanging ceiling clouds, large skylights and plenty of intimate study space. Classrooms and offices will line the hallway near the main entrance. Other features will include a commercial kitchen, paved patio area with tables and chairs, 200-seat chapel and worship area, large lobby and gathering space, teacher’s lounge, nurses station and plenty of storage rooms. The modern exterior will be a combination of stucco and brick with concrete and wood accents and an oversized canopy entrance.
