Barber-Scotia College has closed its doors for the spring semester to prepare for an uncertain future.
The college’s Board of Trustees sent a letter out to parents and students Friday, Jan. 1, explaining that a lack of funds had led to the decision to halt classes until fall 2016.
“Today, we are standing at a crossroads, with several entities interested in partnering with us to give Barber-Scotia a new future,” Board of Trustees chair Barry Green and the college’s Executive Administrator Brenda Simms wrote in the letter. “In order to take advantage of these opportunities, the board has found it necessary to reorganize and restructure the institution for more effective operations in the future. We are therefore suspending classes for the spring 2016 semester, while the Board of Trustees restructures the institution and seeks additional partners to support the mission of a New Barber-Scotia College.”
