CROWN HEIGHTS - After almost closing in the spring, a collaborative effort among administration, teachers and students is helping the Brooklyn Jesuit Prep continue to thrive.

The Catholic middle school provides affordable education to low-income families in the borough.

New York Nativity, the organization that oversaw the school, announced that it would no longer be able to fund it.

School Principal Brian Chap, along with school President Patricia Gauvey decided they would run the school themselves as an independent organization.

The school survives mostly on donations and has to raise 95 percent of the funds, with a goal of $1 million this year.
