We are here and ready to help.
Channel 11 first reported last month when the school started abruptly started laying off staff.
Even after the school filed paperwork with the State Department Education saying it was shutting down, graduating seniors were expecting to finish the semester.
Last Friday, an email was sent saying the school had closed for good.
Some other schools including CCAC and Robert Morris University are stepping up to help students.
