Saint Basil Academy in Jenkintown to close doors after the school year

The Provincial Council of the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great has announced that it will close Saint Basil Academy in Jenkintown after the 2020-2021 school year. According to an article in The Philadelphia Inquirer, the school was unsuccessful in a fundraising campaign last year to establish an endowment, increase annual giving, and increase enrollment. The school was established in 1931.

Below is the announcement from the school’s Facebook page:

A “Save St. Basil’s Academy” Facebook Group has been created and the group looks to raise funds to save the school.
