I'm not sure how much the church is involved now as in for funding. But in history with my primary school for example I know it was started by the sisters of mercy in the late 1800's and I know alot of schools started this way. Alot of catholic schools have churches on ground or very close by, mine had a convent for the nuns and they were heavily involved in the school, our principle was a sister. You might find that alot on catholic schools.
So yeah I'm not sure what happens now, but that's how they started. But for a private school to start, I think it'd have to be funded by someone, like everything I'd imagine it's a business and schools aren't good businesses. Alot of private schools close down, there isn't alot of quality out there, our montissori school closed also which was at a public school and very close by. All the parents who moved to the area to go there had to take their kids out

The only new-ish private schools I've noticed around have been in the new housing estates that spring up in the outer suburbs.
Not sure why...availability of land maybe? Or that there are enough private schools already in the more established areas?

Although I did question how they were going to translate the feel and values of a semi rural school to the city.
What I loved about going to Eltham College was that it was surrounded by trees, huge grounds, a nature reserve, dams etc. Being in the city would be the opposite!
Was it poor enrollments? I can't find anything online about it closing.

It is a shame, tgey actually seemed to be doing a great job of creating a country school feel to an inner city location- a lovely small and intimate school with great community ties.

Guess the news hasn't got out! That will be a big blow to the CEO/ principal David Warner. Lots of ppl haven't agreed how he's done things, this will just give then more reason to criticize him.
