Claymont Community Center

Claymont Community Center was founded by community leaders in 1974 to support the needs of children and families in Claymont, Delaware. The center operates from the former Claymont High School, which was built in 1924 and is rich in U.S. history. One historic turning point occurred in September 1952, when a legal decision enabled 11 African American students to attend Claymont High School. They were the first African Americans to legally integrate in the 17 states that allowed school segregation. This was one of the cornerstone cases cited in the Brown v. Board of Education decision that made segregation illegal and helped jump-start the Civil Rights Movement.

In the years since, we have expanded our service area to the communities surrounding Claymont, and we have welcomed generations of residents through our doors. As a result of a unique mix of our own programs and tenant agencies, we now provide a broad range of activities and services for thousands of people each year.

A nonprofit organization, Claymont Community Center is operated by the Brandywine Community Resource Council, Inc. We are funded through the Delaware Grant-in-Aid Program, United Way of Delaware, and contributions from other government agencies, corporations, foundations, community organizations, businesses, and individuals.
