Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science (CCMS) is a primarily two-year, non-profit, private mortuary science college, located adjacent to St. Xavier High School in Finneytown, Ohio, just outside Cincinnati. CCMS claims to be the oldest school of its kind in the United States,[1] tracing its history back to the Clarke School, which organized its first class on March 8, 1882. The school was later called the Cincinnati College of Embalming, finally arriving at the present name in 1966.[2] CCMS currently offers Associate's degrees and Bachelor's degrees in Mortuary Science.
