Cedar Crest Distance Learning Center

Cedar Crest reopened our Distance Learning Classroom on Monday, November 16, 2020. This program provides a supported classroom on the Cedar Crest Academy campus in which Clarkston Community School District students, K-2, will engage in distance learning programs until in-person instruction resumes in the CCS district. Our mission in developing this program is to provide child care for local families by creating a safe distance learning environment with peer interaction.
