Citing declining enrollment, officials with Mount Washington College in Manchester say the school will close in April of next year.

In a statement on its website, the for-profit college says it will stop enrolling new students immediately and will focus its attention on the school’s roughly 500 current students.

The college says students can complete their programs of study online through Kaplan University free of charge.

Kaplan owns Mount Washington College, formerly known as Hesser College.

The college has been gradually consolidating over the past few years, shutting down campuses in Nashua, Salem, Portsmouth and Concord.

It’s expected the school’s closure will affect about 40 employees.
