NEW ORLEANS -- After being put on probation for six months following the ouster of its president and entire board of trustees, Our Lady of Holy Cross College has been cleared of its probationary status.
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which oversees colleges in Louisiana, notified the Algiers school on Thursday that it is officially cleared.
SACS placed the school on probation in December following the firings of the board and president, while it investigated the circumstances.
No reason was ever given publicly by Holy Cross leaders, or the Marianite order of nuns which owns the school, for the firings last August of the 19-member board and the college’s president, the Rev. Anthony DeConciliis.
A new president, Dr. Ronald Ambrosetti, takes office July 1.
