It will be the end of an era when the 2013 school year comes to a close as Marion Catholic High School is closing its doors.
According to a letter written today by Bishop Frederick Campbell of the Columbus Catholic Diocese, the campus will close amid declining enrollment and financial issues.
In the letter addressed to parents, Bishop Campbell says the decision was tough but, "the only responsible one to make".
Officials from Marion Catholic High School are not commenting on the decision. According to the school's website, Marion's Catholic Schools have been providing education in Marion since 1879, with the current high school being built in 1957.
There is no word on future plans for the current school campus and St. Mary Elementary School but according to reports, talks are under way.
