Submitted by ub on Wed, 02/15/2023 - 20:33

The Superintendent of Schools of the Archdiocese of New York has closed 12 Catholic schools. Four will merge into two.

Extensive broader community research, detailed studies, and careful deliberation and analysis went into the final determination of which schools would not reopen. Unfortunately, due to lower enrollment and shifting demographics.

The Arscdioses said it was made worse by the pandemic, and the impact on the financial stability of these schools was detrimental. All affected families will be welcomed in neighboring Catholic schools, with applications for financial aid and scholarships available for the upcoming academic year where applicable. Additional information will be shared with school constituencies in the coming days.

The following Catholic schools will not reopen:

Academy of St. Paul & St. Ann, Manhattan

Ascension School, Manhattan

Guardian Angel School, Manhattan

Holy Family School, Bronx

Immaculate Conception School, Manhattan

Immaculate Conception School, Bronx

Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, Manhattan

Santa Maria School, Bronx

St. Angela Merici School, Bronx

St. Brendan School, Bronx

St. Christopher School, Staten Island

St. Margaret Mary School, Bronx


St. Francis Xavier, Bronx, will merge with St. Clare of Assisi.
