Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, Alumni and Friends of St John Villa Academy

We, the Sisters of St. John the Baptist, have sadly announced the closure of its schools, St. John Villa Academy High School and St John Villa Academy Elementary School as of June 2018.

We are aware that many people were stunned and shocked by this news and offering all kinds of solutions to preserving the schools.

Three fundamental reasons were given for this closure:

• The diminishment of our Sister personnel to staff the schools.
• The changing demographics of Staten Island which is causing a decline of enrollment in our schools.
• The continual investment in aging buildings and infrastructure.

We have arranged meetings with you to explain more fully these 3 major reasons for the closure. On behalf of the Sisters, I hope you will be present to hear our part of the story so that you may fully understand the need for our decision.

As People of Faith we read in the Scriptures:

“There is an appointed time for everything and
a time for every affair under the heavens.
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.
A time to weep, and a time to build.
A time to mourn, and a time to dance.
A time to be silent and a time to speak…”

We, the Sisters, are grateful for the Lord’s blessings over these 94 years of service to the children and youth of Staten Island. We continue to trust in God, believing that all the good done at Villa cannot be undone but will continue through each of you, to bear fruit into the future.
