Alonzo A. Crim Open Campus High School evolved in 2005-2006 school year. We are a non-traditional program designed to fit the needs of non-traditional students. Alonzo A. Crim Comprehensive High School closed its doors in 2005 leaving Open Campus to occupy the newly renovated campus.
Crim Open Campus High School is for students ages 16 and older residing in the City of Atlanta who have not found success in a traditional high school setting but wishes to earn a high school diploma.
