BELMONT, N.H. -- A small Christian school in Belmont, N.H., is closing, just as doors were to open for the new school year.

Operators of Faith Christian Academy say bad economic times have forced them to close. The school was supposed to open on Wednesday. It's been in operation for more than 30 years.

School administrator Janet Jones said the school is closing primarily because of decreased enrollment. She said families just can't afford tuition on top of other rising costs.

Jones said the school had students from all over the Lakes Region.
