TULSA, Oklahoma -- Evangelistic Temple School and Trinity Episcopal Day School are both closing at the end of the current school year.

Evangelistic Temple Senior Pastor Norman Wilkie said it was a "difficult but unavoidable conclusion" to close "in spite of all the efforts of many talented and dedicated individuals."

The school is located in the 5300 block of South Peoria and served all grades. An employee said the downturn in the economy impacted enrollment when parents could no longer afford private school tuition.

Wilkie said in statement the church made a "significant financial investment" into the school but the cost of the school could not be sustained for another year.

Read the letter from Pastor Norman Wilkie.

Evangelistic Temple School said that all parents who paid in advance for next year will get complete refunds.

Trinity Episcopal Day School at 503 South Cincinnati, is also closing in July.  Trinity now serves pre-school age children from birth to kindergarten age

Tulsa Public Schools has been increasing their pre-school enrollment and this fall will offer pre-school at all elementary schools for the first time.
