FRAMINGHAM – Earlier this month, Marian High School’s Board of Trustees voted to close the school in June.
Trustees cited dwindling enrollment for the reason to close the private, Catholic High School on Union Avenue in Framingham. The President of the school said just 16 students are enrolled for the freshman class for the 2019-20 school year.
Today, some of the current students at the high school staged a #SaveMarian protest in front of the school. They planned to hold another protest on Friday, April 13.
Student Sophie Young, a sophomore at Marian, said the students are hopeful to meet with Mayor Yvonne Spicer when she returns from her trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
Earlier in the week, parents and alumni held a second #SaveMarian meeting. They believe the closure of the school in June, can be reversed, and are hoping to raise money to keep the school open and get Trustees to reverse their vote.
