HARTFORD – The Archdiocese of Hartford has announced the closure of St. Stanislaus School in Meriden.
St. Stanislaus School will close at the end of the school year, and the archdiocese is offering scholarships to students who wish to transfer to the two remaining Meriden schools, St. Joseph and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or to any other Catholic school in the archdiocese.
The changes are the result of demographics, enrollment and finances.
The decision to close St. Stanislaus came “after months of broad-based consultation with constituent groups including parents of current and prospective students,” said Dale R. Hoyt, archdiocesan superintendent of schools, in a statement released Jan. 14.
Excellence in Catholic school education will continue to be provided to families in the city of Meriden,” he said in the statement.
St. Stanislaus was founded in 1897. Our Lady of Mount Carmel opened in 1944. St. Joseph was established in 1915.
