BURBANK, Unwell. – Alumnae of a Catholic Faculty in far south suburban Burbank is hoping to cease the varsity’s closure.
Queen of Peace Excessive Faculty, an all-women Catholic faculty, is about to shut in June after sixty five years in operation.
The choice to shut surprised college students, mother and father and alums when the varsity’s administration introduced it final week.
The president of Queen of Peace says declining enrollment and fundraising as the explanations for closing the doorways.
Present enrollment is at 288 college students, down dramatically from the varsity’s heyday within the Nineteen Sixties and ‘70s when 1400 women would attend yearly.
Administration officers say fundraisers aimed to maintain the varsity open have failed to succeed in their objectives for a number of years operating.
Tuition is capped at $10,500 a yr, however the prices of teaching a single scholar is far greater than that at about $15,000 a yr.
Alumnae at Monday’s assembly say they don’t seem to be pointing fingers however are looking for an answer.
Organizers of tonight’s assembly say they hope to tug collectively the most effective concepts, and provide you with a plan to save lots of the varsity.
