In an unfortunate turn of events Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Virgina which had lost regional accreditation earlier this summer now may be closing. The college which has been on probation for two years was not granted full accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges in June.

Due to the College’s appeal to be heard August 20th Saint Paul’s has chosen to close many operations including housing students on campus this year. The night accelerated graduation program for adults will continue.

Many students have been helped by the college to find other schooling options throughout the summer.

It is truly a tragedy that this historic institution may be coming to a close after 124 years of service.
