Heidelberg Academy closes after 45 years

HEIDELBERG, MS (WDAM) - Next week, Heidelberg Academy will graduate its last senior class.

After 45 years, the school is closing.

School officials say it's because of economic reasons.

The last day of class for all 130 students was last Friday and graduation for 22 seniors will be May 13th.

The school first opened in 1970 as Heidelberg Baptist Academy.
