The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York has announced it is recommending that 14 of its parish schools close at the end of the school year.

Before making the final decision on which schools will close, archdiocesan officials will meet with school officials to discuss their situations, said Joseph Zwilling, a spokesman for the archdiocese.

The 14 schools recommended for closure were chosen either because they have declining enrollments or because they are located near another Catholic school that could absorb the displaced students, Mr. Zwilling said.

The archdiocese closed six schools at the end of last school year. With 110,000 students enrolled in 285 schools, the archdiocese runs the largest Catholic school system in the country.
