Kanye Wests non-accredited private school Donda Academy abruptly closes

Kanye West's non-accredited private school in California will close with immediate effect, it told parents on Wednesday, as controversy continues to boil following the rapper's antisemitic comments.

Parents were notified that Donda Academy would close for the remainder of the 2022-23 school year.

In an email, the principal, Jason Angell, said the decision came "at the discretion of our founder", according to Hollywood Unlocked.

It added that it plans to "begin afresh in September of 2023".

Since it opened in August last year, the $15,000-a-year institution has been largely shrouded in mystery, with the school's website providing little information on curriculum or faculty.

According to Rolling Stone, it enrolled about 100 students. Those associated with the school were allegedly required to sign non-disclosure agreements.

The school was non-accredited. Classes reportedly included choir and parkour.
