JACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville Christian School – founded in 1971 – has closed its doors because of financial reasons, according to a May 22 letter sent to parents.

“The Jacksonville Christian School Board met this week, and the decision was made to close the school,” the letter stated. “Due to the low number of students, the school could not financially support itself any longer. In order to keep the school open, we would have to double tuition which would not be practical for our economy.”

The last day of classes for the Pre-K through seventh grade program was May 21.
