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.

Academy of St. Paul & St. Ann, Manhattan
