Several parents of students at the Coeus International School have told the Washington City Paper that the school is closing after the end of classes in May. Coeus founder and headmaster Daniel Hollinger, when questioned by a reporter at the school this afternoon, refused to confirm or deny that classes will not be held in the fall.
Hollinger founded Coeus in the fall of 2006 after being ousted by the board of trustees of his previous school, Rock Creek International, which closed last year under financial distress. With Coeus, Hollinger ditched the usual non-profit model used by most private schools. He told the City Paper last year that he hoped being able to attract investors would eventually allow the program to expand on a global scale.
Coeus is located on the sixth floor of an office building on Connecticut Avenue near the Van Ness Metro station.
