RIVER GROVE, Ill. — A Catholic high school in River Grove will close permanently this summer.
Guerin Prep High School announced Thursday that is plans to shut its doors June 30. In a letter sent to parents, officials said they made the difficult decision based on dropping enrollment, more students needing tuition assistance and lower than needed donations.
Guerin Prep will hold two informational meetings next week.
Read the full letter below:
The school has been around for nearly 60 years and nearly 20,000 students have graduated from there. The last Guerin Prep class will be the class of 2020.
Transition teams are being set up to help students find their next school and to help teachers find their next job.
The school is a private Roman Catholic school not run by the Archdiocese, which closed five of its own schools earlier this week.
