Petitioning Save St. Cecilia's

stop the closing of our school

St. Cecilia School has been a vital part of the Fox Chase community for over 85 years. We understand that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is trying to revitalize Catholic Education, but the staff at St. Cecilia's has already revitalized our school. Our students have an excellent class size and currently receive a great education with many programs available. the community continues to enroll their children in St. Cecilia's because of the community feel. Fox Chase will no longer be Fox Chase without St. Cecilia's School. Our teachers and staff live in our community and most have been with our school 20+ years, they are being laid off in June. Our school's enrollment is up 8% from 2011 (66%to 74%), St. Cecilia's School has a surplus of $419,741, we continue to have a waiting list for kindergarden. Please help our community keep our school and our teachers!
