New York archdiocese weighs school closings

September 21, 2010

The New York archdiocese is planning to close or merge a number of Catholic schools in order to bolster the viability of the parochial-school system.

While published reports have said that 30 of New York’s 216 parochial schools could close, archdiocesan officials stressed that no firm decisions have yet been made. A list of schools selected for closing will be released next month.
