For St. Thomas Aquinas, I would imagine their middle school is the designated feeder school. Anyone who has not been continuously enrolled in the designated feeder school since 7th grade is assessed some tier of multiplier. OneForTheRoad does bring up a good point about the timeline of when the middle school came into existence and how many St. Thomas Aquinas students would not have come through he middle school beginning in 7th grade. I have no idea if St. Thomas Aquinas asked the OHSAA for an exception in that case. End of the day, St. Thomas Aquinas is DVII for football no matter what, but it could have a greater impact on other sports since the Tier 2 multiplier is much larger in volleyball, baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer.

When CB was first discussed, the physical address of the school was expected to be the determining factor for which non-public school students would and would not be assessed a multiplier. Central Catholic might have been hurt even worse if it had to claim Perry Township as its home district and be assessed a multiplier for the rest. St. Thomas Aquinas would've been hurt worse if it had to claim Louisville City as its home district and be assessed a multiplier for the rest.
Slip, my description is exactly how CB works. Non-Public schools can have multiple feeders as long as the feeders are in the same 'attendance zone' of the selected public school district. To me 'attendance zone' is the same as the entire district as we are concerned only with the Catholic schools in the district.

From the Bylaw: http://www.ohsaa.org/Portals/0/Schoo...awLanguage.pdf
"For non-public member schools, Factors shall be assigned as follows:
—Tier 0 – the student attended the same system of education continuously since the beginning
of the 7th grade and attended one of the designated/assigned feeder schools continuously
since the beginning of 7th grade.
—Tier 1 – the student attended the same system of education continuously since the beginning
of 7th grade but did not attend one of the designated/assigned feeder schools continuously
since the beginning of 7th grade.
"

From How to Determine Your Feeder School(s) for Non-Public Schools: http://www.ohsaa.org/Portals/0/Schoo...SchoolList.pdf

Physical School District Location of Feeder Schools for Competitive Balance
(Updated 9-8-16)
Feeder Schools, for the purposes of Competitive Balance, are the non-public school or schools (parishes
for parochial schools; schools from the same system of education for other private schools) located
within a designated or chosen public school district attendance zone. A high school can have multiple
feeder schools so long as they are located within the same public school district attendance zone,
and a
school(s) can serve as feeder schools for more than one high school simultaneously. If a non-public
member high school fails to choose a school district/attendance zone for its feeder school(s), the public
school attendance zone in which the non-public school is physically located will be assigned as that
school’s selected attendance zone.
As a reminder, feeder schools are considered to be from the Same System of Education as defined by the
Ohio Department of Education (i.e. Catholic Conference of Ohio, Ohio Association of Independent Schools,
Association of Christian Schools International, etc.). Therefore, if a Catholic non-public high school selects
an attendance zone with two parishes and one Montessori school physically located within that zone, the
Catholic non-public school will only be permitted to select the two parishes as its feeder schools
.

BTW, in my previous post I cleaned up the reference to Louisville/St Louis and changed the use of 'district' to 'attendance zone'.
