OUR DONORS MAKE THE BRIARCREST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE!
From the earliest discussions of forming a school in the Mid South that would honor Christ and anchor its education in biblical truth, the founders of Briarcrest knew significant investments would be necessary. Over the course of nearly 50 years, Briarcrest families and friends have sought the Lord's direction as they planned and participated in six different capital campaigns to build and advance our school.
No Greater Joy: The Campaign for Briarcrest (2019)
The A. Duncan and Carolyn S. Williams Wing of the Elementary School is the final phase of the original master plan for our Houston Levee Campus. Included in the Williams Wing are five early childhood classrooms, an art room, a STEM lab, a gymnasium/multi-purpose room, and an age-appropriate playground for our students in the earliest stages of their educational journey.
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4
Fulfilling the Promise (2015)
Building on a Sure Foundation (2008)
Middle & Elementary School
The Lunch Money Campaign (2005)
High School Cafeteria/Multipurpose Room
With the move to Eads, the High School flourished. The Willard R. Sparks Multipurpose Complex is home to a full-service kitchen and cafeteria to accommodate 700 seated students. Following the final bell of each school day, this facility meets other needs such as hosting indoor sports practices, athletic events, and other school activities and banquets, including our annual Alumni Homecoming Dinner each fall.
Giving Him the Praise (2003)
After the completion of the Saints Sportsplex, the focus turned to the construction of a new high school on the same property in eastern Shelby County. In August 2003, Briarcrest families found themselves "giving Him the praise" for a successful capital campaign. The High School opened with general classrooms, science and computer labs, a library/media center, a Fine Arts wing (for visual, instrumental music, vocal music, and drama), a gymnasium (with locker rooms, a weight room, and a wrestling room), and administrative offices.
