BROOKLYN - A Catholic high school that has been in Brooklyn for more than 50 years will be closing its doors.

Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School plans to close down on June 30.

The decision to close the school was made by the school's board of directors at an emergency meeting Sunday night. 

The principal, Thomas Arria Jr., posted an open letter to parents on the school's website Monday, saying that declining enrollment and mounting repairs are the main reason the school is closing.

Students and parents say they will rally in front of the school tomorrow in the hope of changing the school board's mind.
