I promise I knew nothing about it beforehand. I was surprised it took so long to be honest.

The numbers I've heard for Elder's freshman class are alarmingly low. Well over 50 students less than the smallest incoming class they've ever had. Someone is dropping the ball big-time over there.

Cuyahoga County (and surrounding counties) Catholic high schools

Cuyahoga

Beaumont
Benedictine
Cleveland Central Catholic
Ed's
Gilmour
Holy Name
Ignatius
Padua
St. Joseph Academy
Magnificat
St. Martin de Porres
Trinity
VASJ

Lake

Lake Catholic

Geauga

NDCL

Summit

Walsh Jesuit
Hoban
SV/SM

Lorain

Elyria Catholic

Cleveland area is buttressed by the Cleveland voucher, which can now be used by students who live in Cleveland and attend Ignatius, SJA, Benny, VASJ, Mag's, Ed's, Martin de Porres and I think Trinity, Holy Name and Padua as well.

There are some weak Catholic high schools. At the moment, Trinity looks to be stuggling; ditto Beaumont. Benny and VASJ are smallish but seem to be stable. The Big 4 on the West side are all strong (Ed's, Ignatius, SJA, Mag's) as are the Akron 3 and NDCL. Lake Catholic is fading a bit.

Private Catholic schools are not Cincinnati Public.

They've got to do something about the cost and dramatically expand aid to everyone who wants to send a kid to one of our schools.

I think the biggest problem is Elder needs to sell the school much better than they do. The schools they are competing for students with are all very aggressive now in their marketing, even the public schools. The old guard over there is still stuck in that line of thinking that Elder sells itself and kids want to go to Elder just because it's Elder. That's true for some, but nothing like it used to be. I hear LaSalle has over 50 more freshman enrolled for next year than Elder does. That is a really bad sign for the school.

If I read it right, Cleveland John Marshall's homepages says this is their last graduating class.

Marshall has a brand new building. It's not closing. I read what you referenced. If you read more, elsewhere, the school appears to be re-purposing itself in some ways, becoming 3 schools under one roof, which is a common approach in Cleveland.

Valley Forge and Normandy in the Parma City Schools will be closed. It was supposed to be both schools final year this year, with all 3 schools, Parma, Normandy and Valey Forge combining. 10-12 at Parma Senior 6-9 at Valley Forge and Normandy. However it was passed for one more year the schools will be open.

There was an interesting turn of events when the plans for one singular school for the county were finalized. And in the wake of this, most of these communities like Redkey, Salamonia, Dunkirk, Penville and Bryant have lost their identity.
In the gyms of Jay County and South Adams, you can still see the old banners of the past schools.
My wife graduated from Jay County in 1985. She went to Madison for elementary. Jay County is very small but spread out quite a bit.
