St. Elizabeth Academy To Close After 130 Years
School officials told students in an assembly on Tuesday that lack of enrollment will close St. Elizabeth Academy, one of the city’s oldest Catholic high schools at the end of the school year. The all-girls school at 3401 Arsenal Street since 1882 revealed this year’s enrollment is only 133. An ever increasing deficit , the growing cost of maintenance, and tuition for the 2012-13 school year at $8,900 made the school become less affordable. The school saw a downturn in enrollment when the economy soured a few years back, although a slight decrease had already begun 15 years ago. School officials will work with the archdiocese to place students in other high schools for 2013-14, as reported by the Post Dispatch.
