Word of Life Academy to shut down
After 17 years the Word of Life Academy will shut down at the end of the current school year due to the economic downturn, according to a statement released today from the school’s headmaster, Royce Tanouye.
“The economic downturn facing our state and our nation has affected WOLA and our families, and despite the outstanding efforts of the administration and staff, and the significant investment that has been made in the school, dropping enrollments along with declining revenues have made a long-term future unsustainable,” the statement said.
“After much prayer, research, counsel, and deliberation, the Board of Directors has decided that this will be WOLA’s last year in operation.”
Royce said the academy would continue to school its 250 students until June 4.
