We are saddened to announce that a severe staffing shortage has resulted in the closure of Earle Street Academy for the 2021-2022 school year. ESA has always operated within the highest safety standards in accordance with DSS regulations and Earle Street Baptist Church insurance policies. We cannot continue to safely operate while suffering from the current staffing shortages affecting preschool programs across the state. We hope to soon see a revival of this valuable ministry, but only when adequate staffing can be provided.
