History of Crouse CLC

The Crouse Community Learning Center was completed in 2009.

Crouse CLC is named in honor of George W. Crouse (1832-1912), who served as a teacher, county official, secretary-treasurer and president of a farm machinery manufacturer. He helped Dr. B.F. Goodrich to build the first rubber plant in Akron. Crouse was also a trustee of Buchtel College, and member and president of both the Akron Board of Education and City Council. In 1885, he was elected to the Ohio Senate and in 1886 to the U.S. Congress. He had a reputation of integrity and intelligence.

Groundbreaking for new building took place on June 4, 2007. The new CLC opened its doors to students on August 26, 2009. The original elementary school building was constructed in 1920, with an addition built in 1929.
