Two dozen Catholic schools to close

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The Archdiocese of New York has released the list of 22 elementary schools and two secondary that will close after June 2013.

Local boards and the ad hoc Reconfiguration Committees, after talks with local pastors, principals, administrators, and elected officials, finalized the list.

"Affected families will be welcomed in neighboring Catholic schools, and every effort will be made to assist those who are facing financial challenges making the transition," the archdiocese said in a news release.

"The Archdiocese is not alone in facing financial challenges in education—we share these issues with public, private and other faith-based schools across the country," Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said in a statement. "This reconfiguration process will help ensure that our schools will be financially stable, sustainable and, more importantly, open to all students."
