One of the nation's oldest military-style boarding schools, whose students have included Donald Trump and Francis Ford Coppola, plans to close because of financial problems.

The New York Military Academy was founded in 1889. School superintendent Robert Watts says it will shut after the academic year ends this spring.

The school had been trying to restructure its debt but hasn't been able to raise enough money to keep operating.

The campus is a short drive north of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. It had about 150 students in grades 7-12.

Other notable past students include composer Stephen Sondheim and mobster John "Junior" Gotti.
