The Catholic Diocese of Greensburg will close one school immediately and keep two others open with revised staffing an academic structures.
The diocese did not accept a viability proposal from All Saints Regional School in Masontown. The school's enrollment was just 62 students in grades pre-K through six and dropped to 41 students registered for the 2013-14 school year, according to a press release from the diocese.
The diocese announced accepted viability proposals from St. John the Baptist Regional Catholic School in Scottdale and The Cardinal Maida Academy in Vandergrift.
School leadership teams were informed of the decisions Monday. The decisions were the result of a process that started last year as part of the diocese's strategic plan. The three schools were identified as ones that needed a program review and restructuring based on enrollment and finances.
St. John the Baptist, which had been a pre-K through eighth grade school, will now operate a pre-K through fourth grade program. The Cardinal Maida Academy, which had been a pre-K through sixth grade school, will now be a pre-K through fifth grade school.
