Save Mount Assisi Academy

It’s been less than a week since the girls at Mount Assisi Academy in Lemont, Illinois found out that their school would be closing in June of this year, and they refuse to go down without a fight. Starting a Facebook page entitled ‘Save Mount Assisi Academy’ the same day as the official news came from their school’s website, people began rallying together by the thousands. In only five short days, over 7,000 people have liked the page, and on Twitter the tag ‘#savemaa’ has trended. The problem, however, is not with the support and the number of kids who love their school, but rather the money the school has in order to continue operating. If you’d like to support their fight to keep their school open, follow the links below.
