ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – The Diocese of Trenton announced Friday that the Mother Teresa Regional School on South Avenue will close in June due to declining enrollment and financial difficulties.

The pre-K through 8th grade school – which was established in September 2006 – is less than 10 years old, but the Diocese said the school “could no longer be sustained” because of financial challenges that several of the [six] supporting parishes are experiencing, as well as the school’s dwindling enrollment, which has fallen below 100 students.

Parents and faculty at the school were notified of the decision in a letter from JoAnn Tier, the Diocese of Trenton’s moderator of Catholic education and superintendent of schools.

Supporting parish communities were scheduled to be informed during Saturday and Sunday masses.
