History of Findley CLC

Findley CLC is named in honor of Samuel Findley (1831-1908), who served as the superintendent of Akron Public Schools for 15 years, from 1868-83. He was very active in the education community of Ohio, serving as editor and publisher of the Ohio Educational Monthly after his retirement. The original school building was constructed in 1906, and an addition was made in 1926. The dedication for new building took place on December 16, 2009; classes started in the new building on November 30, 2009.
