Editor's Note: In an earlier edition of this story, we incorrectly reported that the blue ribbon commission would impact St. Philip Neri School in Whitemarsh. That information was incorrect and has been taken out of this edit of the story. We regret the mistake and apologize for the error.
Two Plymouth-Whitemarsh catholic elementary schools could be closed in the coming year as part of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Blue Ribbon Commission, the Archdoicses announced Friday.
Conshohocken Catholic School in Conshohocken and Epiphany of our Lord in Plymouth Meeting have been reccomended to be combined with other area schools as part of a regionalization of the Catholic School system, according to the commission’s website.
Conshohocken Catholic, which is reportedly operating at 43 percent enrollment capacity, would be merged with Mother of Divine Providence to form a new school in King of Prussia.
Epiphany of our Lord, operating at 41 percent enrollment, would merge with St. Titus and Our Lady of Victory to form a currently unnamed school to be located at Walton Road in Plymouth.
