OSG High: SoCal's Montclair Prep Cuts Athletics, Financial Aid

((HT: KTLA-TV Los Angeles))

School officials at Montclair College Preparatory in suburban Los Angeles have decided to cut its sports program, grade services, and financial aid incentives. School Director Mark Simpson sent out a letter to the more than 200 students enrolled in the 2011-12 school year notifying them of the changes.

"As a result of this economy and overwhelming requests for financial aid, we had to restructure," Simpson told the LA Times.

The school will also discontinue grades seven and eight and will only operate as a high school, and the school's financial aid program will also be eliminated.

Founded in 1956, Montclair is known for its notable alumni including Cher, Nicole Richie and Khloe Kardashian.
