The recently closed American Hebrew Academy has announced it will reopen. The Greensboro institution will be running again next school year.

The announcement came with little fanfare.

The school’s website, which had previously shown the simple message, “The American Hebrew Academy is closed,” now reads, “Exciting news! The Academy will be reopening for the 2020 - 2021 school year!”

The campus closed abruptly on June 11 of this year, with most staff and faculty contracts ending unexpectedly the very next day.  

Low enrollment and declining donations were the reasons given for its initial closure.

The academy’s website is still undergoing reconstruction, but it says that students will soon be invited to apply for admission online.
