Prism Education Center was started in 2012 by a group of families from The Community church in Fayetteville, Arkansas who sought a values-based educational environment for their children. The school initially had preschool through 7th-grade students. Each year since that time, the school added a grade until they reached a full preschool through 12th-grade program in 2017.
Prism is accredited by the internationally recognized accrediting entity AdvancEd (formerly North Central).
In 2017, Prism moved to a permanent facility at 2855 East Joyce Blvd.
