According to a release, St. Cyprian’s said the board of trustees made the decision due to financial challenges and population size. The school said they will ensure a smooth transition for all affected students and staff.

“Our administration continues to meet with the high school families directly impacted, developing tailored programs for upperclassmen to graduate from St. Cyprian’s in the upcoming 2024-2025 school year through a hybrid/online program,” St. Cyprian’s said. “Families with incoming freshman and sophomore students are being supported through partnerships with surrounding schools to find the best fit for their child.”

The school said they thank the teachers, administrators, parents and students who have been a part of the high school program over the past five years.
