MCADOO –  Diocesan leaders announced the closing of a parochial school in Schuylkill County.

McAdoo Catholic Elementary is closing at the end of the current school year.

In a letter sent home to parents, it says students will be eligible for $1,500 grants toward tuition at other Catholic schools in the Diocese of Allentown next school year.

It appears the school is closing because of declining enrollment and financial challenges.

School leaders launched a campaign last month to increase enrollment.
