Philadelphia closes, merges schools
Catholic News Service


Forty-nine Catholic schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese will form 23 regional schools and 10 schools will close outright under a decision made public.
Some schools will remain free-standing parish schools because they have demonstrated they are poised for long-term viability, the archdiocese said. Some schools are closing outright to allow welcoming schools to retain their identity. Other schools may still form a regional school but at a different location.
Four archdiocesan high schools were recommended for closure but donors generated enough money to keep them open.
Another initiative involves the creation of up to 14 mission schools in schools that were slated for consolidation. Located in underserved communities, they would replicate the success of a mission school that already exists.
