Archdiocese Releases List of Schools at Risk for Closure

The schools were selected by committees that looked at enrollment and demographics of the school community

The Archdiocese of New York has released their final list of schools at-risk for closure in June 2013. 

The schools, located in Manhattan and the Bronx as well as Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Ulster, Orange and Sullivan counties, were selected by local boards of three pilot regions within the diocese. Both clergy and lay people are included on these boards.
The boards, along with reconfiguration committees, examined data -- including enrollment and local demographics -- that ensures the decision to close these schools will result in financially healthy schools, according to a press release.
"The long-term goal of regionalization is to maintain sustainable, excellent local school options for families wishing a Catholic education," the press release said.
The list of "at-risk" schools is included below.
