Anamarc alerts students of closure, part of exit plan revealed  story image

EL PASO, Texas-- Anamarc's doors will not be re-opening.
The school sent an e-mail to its students Friday, confirming what many of them long suspected: The school is shutting down.
The e-mail, sent by owners Ana and Marc Houde reads, “With deep sadness and very regrettably, Anamarc College is closing its operations due to financial instability. Plese do not return to school on July 14, 2014, after Summer break.”
The e-mail was sent to students late Friday afternoon, the day the college was to have formulated its exit strategy and “teach out plan.” 
The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, which accredits Anamarc, told KFOX14 the plan is not completed yet.
Tony Bieda, the external president for ACICS tells KFOX14 Anamarc has reached a “teach out” agreement with the New Mexico Board of Nursing in order to have about a dozen nursing students from the Santa Teresa Campus complete their degree. 
There are a little more than 500 students at Anamarc’s three campuses, two an El Paso and one in Santa Teresa. 
According to Bieda, The Excel Learning Center in El Paso has also agreed to take transferring Anamarc students, with their credits, from four programs. Those programs include Nursing assistant, medical assistant, medical billing and coding and patient care technician.
That still leaves Texas nursing students and likely some nursing students from the Santa Theresa campus without out options at the moment.
Bieda said their stipulations require Anamarc find a remedy for all of their students and ACICS will not officially pull its accreditation until that is done. 
“Now these students are having to scramble to find something comparable and accessible,” said Bieda.
KFOX14 tried to ask owners Ana and Marc Houde what they plan to do for their more than 500 students while they were at their central campus on Dyer Friday afternoon.
Both dodged the KFOX14 cameras and ignored the questions of KFOX14 reporter Genevieve Curtis.
Ana Houde drove off in a Lexus SUV while Marc Houde left in a GMC Tahoe.
