Poor Thang: Bishop Don Juan Eddie Long Closes His School Down Due To Money Woes

- By Bossip Staff

Looks like all those lawsuits and that divorce are catching up to Eddie Long Stroke.

New Birth Christian Academy is closing after 18 years, sending hundreds of students scrambling to find a new school by next week. The academy, founded by Bishop Eddie Long, informed parents in a letter dated Dec. 22 that the private school’s “funding estimates fall far short of our projected needs. It is a very sad occasion, as the NBCA board has made the tough decision to temporarily close the school.”

“We have operated New Birth Christian Academy for several years with substantial deficits in hopes that the national economic climate would change, however, that change never materialized,” said to the letter signed by Carlton Donald, the board’s vice chair.

This has been a hellacious year for Eddie Long. And now his school is closing. Actually, that’s probably for the best. Just saying. We hope those teachers land on their feet and those students find some good schools though.
