A Catholic school on the verge of closing received some good news on Monday.
Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School now has $5 million in total after two anonymous donors helped the school reach its goal.
Bonner-Prendie was one of the four high schools recommended for closure by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia back in January. The school appealed that decision later in the month and promised the Archdiocese they would raise the money necessary to keep the school open as part of its appeal.
Bonner-Prendie President Reverend James Olson says part of the appeal’s success will depend on the school’s fundraising efforts.

On Friday, Archbishop Charles Chaput is expected to make a final decision on the appeal.
