The school was scheduled to hold another school year starting in fall 2013, but it closed shortly before the beginning of the school year since it was in financial trouble. It owed $27,000 ($27759.86 according to inflation) in payroll taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as of March 2013.[5] The Texas Education Agency (TEA) revoked accreditation due to the loss of the tax-exempt status, with notification that it wuld do so dated July 19, 2013.[6]
