After 60 years, the Ursuline Preschool & Kindergarten will be closing at the end of the 2022-23 school year.

According to a news release, the Ursuline Sisters Mission Board and the Leadership Team of the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown made this decision only after considering all other options.

According to the release, income received through tuition does not cover the educational expenses of the school, so the Ursuline Sisters have long underwent the cost of operating the school through a small stipend paid to the Sisters, little rent payment for the facility and improving wages and benefits for staff.

However, the Sisters are no longer able to afford these expenses stating that parents have numerous options for preschool and kindergarten education in the area.

The school will remain open for the rest of the 2022-23 school year.
