As more schools close, remaining schools don't have the infrastructure to handle increased demand. Depending on where they live, more kids are left waiting.
In the past 10 years 1,511 Catholic schools have closed and the number of students receiving a Catholic education has declined by nearly 20%.*
Increased costs in some areas has restricted access for many. Last year, 75,000 fewer students attended Catholic elementary school than the previous year.**
