The Clarkston Community Center was established in 1994 in the historic former Clarkston High School. This classic style structure, constructed in 1924, was renovated throughout in 2007 with updated systems and reconfigured space to accommodate the needs of a thriving community center.  In addition to the original building, the large complex includes an activity field for sports and other outdoor events, and a community garden. The auditorium and stage, Angora Hall, is a perfect place for private parties, weddings, receptions, performances and other events. Visit Us and see for yourself!

The CCC programs are about improving the quality of life from young people to seniors and everyone in between. Our programs offer opportunities to learn, gain skills, discover new interests, meet neighbors, enjoy the visual and performing arts and participate in any of a broad spectrum of programs, activities and events.

In 2015, we served over 40,000 individuals with over 60,000 people passing through the building.

Only at the CCC will you find a contra dancers from Atlanta, drummers from Burundi, a steel pedal guitar player from Macon, a farmer from Bhutan, a lawyer from Somalia and a business owner from Ethiopia sitting side-by-side to watch a World Cup game or help a child with their homework. For the CCC, this is what life looks like.
