Our Lazy of Nazareth Shutting Its Doors

Students, faculty, and parents at Our Lady of Nazareth Academy learned last night that the school will close at the end of the academic year.

The small all-girls school in Wakefield, run by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, has been open for 61 years.

Sister Rose Howard, a director of ministries for the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, told the crowd that the order "had been concerned for some time about the school's financial health," according to a press release. "Recent events compelled us to take this difficult action. We are truly saddened to have to take this step." - Boston Globe

Not too many girls have the urge to go to all-girls schools anymore.
