Briarcrest Christian School was founded in 1973 as a segregation academy during the racial integration of Memphis public schools. In its early years, the Briarcrest system held elementary-grade classes in various churches, so it could concentrate capital spending on its high school campus. This satellite location was housed at the former Cherokee Baptist Church, 5340 Quince Road.
