ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The St. Louis Archdiocese has announced it will close one of its high schools that has been open since 1968.
Archbishop Robert Carlson says the 2016-2017 academic year will be the last one for John F. Kennedy Catholic High School in Manchester.
Over the past several years, it had been struggling with enrollment. This year the enrollment is 191 students with a freshman class of 33.
The Archdiocesan Office of Catholic Education plans to transition students to private or other Archdiocesan high schools for the next school year.
