Plan Submitted to Save Holy Angels Academy



Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Last week, we learned Holy Angels Academy would close its doors at the end of the school year. Friday, we learned of a plan by a parent group to try and save it.

The group Save Holy Angels says it needs initial pledges of $2.5 million, with a total of $8 million over eight years to sustain the school and repay the Grey Nuns, who with the board of trustees, announced it would close the school at the end of June.

The group says the plan identifies new strategies for immediate short, and long-term financial recovery, new components for curriculum, new goals and strategy for enrollment, immediate expansion of alumna and parent involvement, communication improvement, and a strong emphasis on honoring commitments to all current HAA students.

"Time is of the essence. We fully trust that the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and the Board of Trustees will act with the same speed, love, and determination that the Holy Angels family has witnessed since the heartbreaking April 30, 2013 closing announcement. We pray and anxiously await their collective decision," says the group in a statement. 

The group expects a decision by the middle of next week.
