LAST CATHOLIC SCHOOL SLATED FOR CLOSURE, FINALLY REPRIEVED
Saint Florian School Lives to See Another Year
Chicago, IL, March 1, 2014 - Saint Florian School Will Remain Open with Continued Support
Moving forward, the Archdiocese will no longer provide St. Florian School with the financial support that has been given to them in the past. The announcement of closure was received January 9th. Nearing the end of January, seeing the commitment that families, parishioners, alumni, the surrounding community, and the larger Catholic community have to the school, the Archdiocese gave St. Florian an opportunity to remain open.
St. Florian School is proud to announce that in one month's time, they have not only raised the money to close the deficit for next year, but also have a portion of the deficit pledged for the next 2 years to follow.
At any point, if the school cannot maintain financial independence, the Archdiocese will close them. The community of St. Florian views this as a very attainable challenge. Through an increase in tuition rates, additional external scholarship support, increased governance oversight and school support, and a three-year pledge drive, St. Florian is confident that they will remain open. The school thanks all of their supporters, whom they have been so graciously been blessed with, and asks them to continue keeping Saint Florian in their hearts and prayers throughout this ongoing endeavor.
