St. Daniel-St. Matthew Academy to close

St. Daniel-St. Matthew Academy in East Syracuse will close this fall due to declining enrollment, according to a news release distributed by the Syracuse Catholic Diocese today. Students will transition to area Catholic elementary schools for the 2010-2011 school year.

"This decision underscores the commitment of the school's pastors, as well as the Diocese of Syracuse, to assure the continuance of quality Catholic education in a fiscally sound environment," the release said, adding that it is believed the move will strengthen the Catholic school system in the western region of the Diocese.

Parents of the Academy's students recently attended a meeting to hear how the Academy will facilitate this transition.
