Limai Academy, a K-12 private school in Eagle Rock that planned to open this school year will not open after all. Enrollment was too low to get the school off the ground.
The low enrollment is a disappointment to the school’s staff members, who had operated a well-attended day camp at Limai during the summer. The staff had hoped that parents, seeing their children thrive at camp, would enroll them in the school.
Sources told the Boulevard Sentinel that parents seemed spooked by memories of the sudden closure last year of a charter school in Eagle Rock that was located in the building that Limai took over for its school.
A new Limai Academy in Gardena opened this school year as planned.
