    School Overview

    In 1900, the Russell Creek Baptist Association made the decision to establish the Russell Creek Academy in Campbellsville. Students first enrolled in 1907, and by 1924, academic growth launched the school’s official name change to Campbellsville College. As the college transitioned from a junior college to four-year program, Campbellsville celebrated accreditation and, once again, in 1996, changed its name to Campbellsville University. Today, the private, four-year Christian institution has a main campus on 85 acres in Campbellsville, Kentucky, along with the 135-acre Clay Hill Memorial Forest, a research prodiverty located seven miles from the main campus. Campbellsville University awards associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, along with pre-professional, post-graduate, and certificate programs.
