MONTCLAIR, N.J. (AP) - Montclair’s Immaculate Conception High School will stay open after organizers raised nearly $500,000.

The Archdiocese of Newark had planned to close the school, which had amassed $900,000 in debt.

Development director Celia Honohan tells The Star-Ledger of Newark (https://bit.ly/1zIhNNV ) organizers reached out to former students across the nation to raise money and mobilized local events.

The school’s board of trustees now plans to use social media in a bid to increase enrollment, which was 168 last year. The building can handle nearly 400 students.
