A charter school for male students of middle and senior-school age has had to suspend operations for the coming academic year because of low enrolment.

Calvin White, head of the board for Impact Mentoring Academy in Pembroke, said the decision came after an assessment of the school’s finances.

He said the board planned to reopen the school in September 2024.

Impact Mentoring had been run out of the Berkeley Cultural Centre.

Mr White added that the board was “genuinely sorry to announce that Impact Mentoring Academy will not be accepting students for the coming year”.

“Our primary focus has always been providing a high-quality education and a nurturing environment for our students. Unfortunately, the decline in enrolment for this school year has led us to make this difficult decision.”

He acknowledged that the temporary closure would affect the families who had signed up, along with Impact’s four staff.

“The board is committed to assisting these individuals and offering support during this transition period,” he said.

“The board of Impact Mentoring Academy expresses its heartfelt gratitude to the students, parents and staff who have been a part of the school's journey.

“The decision to suspend operations was not taken lightly, and the board remains committed to the vision, mission and values that have defined Impact Mentoring Academy.”
