Catholic Elementary School To Stay Open

Back in January the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg announced that Holy Family School in Berwick would close at the end of this school year due to declining enrollment and increasing debt. But now, Bishop Ronald Gainer says he has approved a plan from the newly-formed Committee to Save Holy Family School to keep the school open. The diocese says alumni have pledged $250,000 to help support the school and a strategy aimed at boosting enrollment has also been developed. Currently, the school has just over 60 students in pre-k through 4th grade.
