Why Celina

Celina is one of the fastest growing suburbs in the metro, estimated to grow to 300,000 residents by 2050. With great schools, plenty of fun things to do and a reputation as a safe community, Celina is undoubtedly the best place to raise a family in DFW!

Convenient Access

As the Metroplex has grown and more corporations relocated to the northern suburbs, Celina’s location puts residents within quick reach of major business parks like Legacy West and new thoroughfares like the Dallas North Tollway extension and the Collin County Outer Loop.

Proximity to family-friendly hubs including city parks and the treasured downtown square also makes Celina among the most kid-friendly DFW cities.

Small Town Community

The city may be growing but Celina retains that small-town environment families love. During the fall, you’ll find residents cheering on the Bobcats football team under Friday night lights.

Celina is also known for its celebration of authentic culture, including its signature event, CajunFest, and other family-oriented events including Parkfest, Friday Night Farmer’s Markets, Movies on the Square, Splash and Blast 4th of July Celebration, Trick or Treat on the Square and Christmas on the Square.

Acclaimed Schools

Celina ISD is known as a “Destination District,” showcasing top-performing schools with remarkable academic and extracurricular programs. The district received an “A” accountability rating from the Texas Education Agency, scoring top marks for student achievement and closing performance gaps.

Cambridge Crossing is proud to be home to Celina ISD’s next elementary school, which will allow our youngest residents to walk to school and attend classes in a new, state-of-the-art facility with a central outdoor amphitheater and learning center.

Safe City

Celina was named among the 25 safest cities in Texas by Safewise.com. The report is gathered by using the most recent data available in the FBI Unified Crime Report, as well as the number of violent crime and property crime incidents per 1,000 residents in each city.

The Celina Police Department credits its community policing philosophy, which utilizes community engagement along with proactive strategies, to help keep Celina a safe community.
