Kanye West’s Christian prep school, Donda Academy, is closing — the latest fallout following the rapper’s anti-Semitic rants.

The mysterious school, located in Simi Valley, Calif., reportedly announced the abrupt decision Wednesday night, landing yet another blow on the “Jesus Walks” hitmaker.

The principal of the private school, which charges $15,000 a year, sent an email to parents noting “there is no school tomorrow,” The Times of London reported.

“At the discretion of our Founder, Donda Academy will close for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year effective immediately,” principal Jason Angell wrote.

He said the shutdown wasn’t permanent and that the school, which requires parents to sign non-disclosure agreements, is planning to open its doors in September 2023.

The closure comes after an avalanche of deals and contracts declared null and void following West’s hateful rants on social media.

The father-of-four, who legally changed his name to Ye, vowed to go “death con 3” on Jewish people. He was immediately banned from both Twitter and Instagram after the comments.

The remarks prompted former Donda Academy employee and Jewish educational consultant, Tamar Andrews, to hand in her notice on Oct. 11.

The school closure also came hours after West paid an unplanned visit to Skechers corporate offices in Los Angeles Wednesday — only to be shown the door.

Skechers, which is operated by a Jewish family, issued a press release after West’s visit, reiterating he “arrived unannounced and without invitation.”

The closure of the academy comes after deals and contracts parted ways with Ye after his social media rants.

Despite Adidas, Balenciaga, and Vogue severing their relationships with West, the “Flashing Lights” rapper maintains he’ll never be canceled.

“I ain’t losing no money,” he told TMZ, shrugging. “The day I was taken off the Balenciaga site, that was one of the most freeing days. We here, baby, we ain’t going nowhere.”

Asked if he was sorry for his remarks, West told The Post columnist Piers Morgan last week: “No. Absolutely not.”
