Niagara Catholic High School is closing its doors effective immediately. Parents of students at the school tell 7EWN that they were made aware of the news earlier on Wednesday.

The school confirmed the move in an email saying "As a result of very recent and unexpected news of a significant reduction in Diocesan financial support, coupled with continued enrollment declines and growing financial challenges, Niagara Catholic High School on 66th Street, will close its doors effective immediately."

"We have made every effort to consider the impact of our decision on all of our constituent members: faculty, adminstration, and most importantly our customers - the parents who sacrifice to provide a Catholic education for their children - during our deliberations" said Judi Nolan Powell, Chair of the Governing Board of Niagara Catholic. 

Niagara Catholic High School was established in Niagara Falls in 1975 and is the only Catholic high school in Niagara County.
