Abilene Christian University
Abilene Christian University (ACU) is a private, non-profit university in Abilene, Texas, United States, affiliated with Churches of Christ. It was founded in 1906 as Childers Classical Institute.
Abilene Christian University grew from an idea held by A.B. Barret and Charles Roberson to form a school in West Texas. The Churches of Christ in Abilene agreed to back the project. J.W. Childers sold Barret land and a large house west of the town, and lowered the price with the stipulation that the school would be named in his honor. Childers Classical Institute opened in the fall of 1906, with 25 students. It initially included a lower school starting in the seventh grade.
