Rome Catholic School To Lose 7-12 Program At End Of Year

Kristine Bellino

The Rome Catholic School is losing its grades 7 through 12 program.

According to a letter written by Bishop Robert Cunningham with the Syracuse Diocese, the closure is part of a “change in the configuration of Catholic Schools in the eastern region of the Diocese of Syracuse.”

A declining enrollment and an unsuccessful push to recruit more students were attributed to the closure. During the last three years, Cunningham noted that several benchmarks were not met, resulting in a failure to continue.

Other schools, including Rome Catholic School’s K through 6 program and Notre Dame’s Elementary and Middle-High Schools will remain open.

Current students in grades 6 through 12 in Rome Catholic School will be offered a $1,000 transition scholarship to continue their learning through Notre Dame JSHS. There will also be transportation to the school and opportunities to visit and see what the Notre Dame Program has to offer.

Calls to the Syracuse Diocese have not been immediately returned.
