St. Jerome Academy to close in June

The Brooklyn Tablet, in an article dated 2.12.2014, announces the closure this June of St. Jerome Academy, East 29th Street, near Newkirk and Nostrand Avenues.  The article states that 235 students are enrolled, and that the closure results from monetary deficits in operation and repairs.


  1. That is sad news. I was a student there from 1954-61 and am disheartened to hear about this closure. I guess it's a sign of our times...

  2. Sad i was in 5th grade when it closed
