Wilton Catholic school closes due to low enrollment, budget issues
Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Academy in Wilton is closing due to low enrollment and budget issues.
The academy says it discussed in a parent meeting in May the challenges it was facing and a potential of a closure for the 2022-2023 school year.
The school was given a deadline of June 29 to reach a minimum enrollment of 95 students but was not able to.
The academy said on its website, "We are deeply saddened by the reality of OLFCA closing - saddened for our own families and for future families who will never come to know the Our Lady of Fatima family. Many of us have been associated with this wonderful school for a decade or more, and some for much, much longer. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this family, especially those who have worked or volunteered to provide an excellent Catholic education for our young people."
