CCMS’ rigorous curriculum exceeds accreditation standards and prepares students to be top funeral directors. Our on-site lab facilities are devoted to embalming, restorative art, and dissection, and because we partner with the area’s largest anatomical donation program, our students gain unparalleled experience in embalming. We offer unique learning opportunities for our students, including crematory operator and celebrant training. Our faculty and adjunct faculty bring real-world experience to the classroom; they are licensees, certified funeral celebrants, business owners, and much more.

We invite you to compare us to other mortuary science programs!
