Hallahan and McDevitt High Schools to Permanently Close

After conducting a strategic study of the Archdiocesan system of secondary education that examined current and projected enrollments, student retention rates, regional demographic trends, capacity figures and financial solvency, a recommendation was made to the senior leadership of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia that John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School and Bishop McDevitt High School be closed at the conclusion of the 2020-2021 academic year. That recommendation was accepted by Archbishop Perez after a thorough review of the analysis as well as consultation with the senior administration of Faith in the Future, Office for Catholic Education and the Archdiocese. As a result, both schools will close permanently following the completion of the current school year.
