Eddie Long’s New Birth Christian Academy Closes Down Due to Financial Issues

Well, the beginning of the end is still moving along at Bishop Long’s New Birth Church. As he will never confront the sexual allegations or any other allegations against him, his church empire is struggling financially since the dirt as surfaced. We want to thanks Hinterland Gazette for the heads up on the story.

Channel 2 Action News reported Tuesday night, New Birth Christian Academy is shutting its doors, temporarily the school board stated.

Even though the New Birth Christian Academy Board of Directors states the decision to close is not related to the sexual coercion allegations, most of us know better than that.

News reports have stated the school will not reopen after the holidays.

School officials issued this statement to Channel 2:

“The deficit, along with the declining enrollment over the years, left the New Birth Christian Academy Board of Directors with no other option. The board has made the tough decision to temporarily close the school.”

The statement is not being completely truthful. In the report, it stated just a few years ago, the school’s enrollment was over 300 students but this year dwindled down to less than 100 students.

How many of us know the school will probably not be temporarily closed but indefinitely?

It needs to be mentioned that the letter sent to parents of the students of the school have not addressed refunding the remaining registration fees that were paid for an entire school year.

Here’s is an overview of what parents were paying for their children to attend NB Christian Academy:

Annual Registration Fees– $300 plus testing fees (All fees were, of course, Non-refundable & Non-Transferable)

Annual Matriculation Fee– from $800 to $1000

Pre-K 3 – 4th Grade– Tuition (Non-New Birth Members) was $6198 and $5678 for additional child

5th Grade – 12th Grade– Tuition for (New Birth Members) was $5725 and $5253 for additional child and reaching up to over $6500 for grades 12th. Source from NB website.

These were some serious tuition and registration fees and we can only wonder how much of it needs to be refunded.

We will keep you posted as New Birth and Eddie Long will most likely be facing several lawsuits by these parents. Source
