    2024 Cincinnati Area Open Jobs

    We are getting off topic but Daddy ball or not, if the referendum passes this week, I have heard from Elder coaches that they plan to elect to play D1. If LaSalle drops out of the conference, the remaining schools really should look to go to another conference. A 3 team league is just foolish -...

    New OHSAA Divisions

    Word that I have heard from buddies that have girls at both schools, is that both MM & UA incoming freshman is around 120ish girls

    New OHSAA Divisions

    If the referendum passes, it will be business as usual in the GGCL in the tourney - outside of SUA as they have competed and won in D2 and it may not matter to them, I just don't see MND and UA competing in anything but D1 If referendum doesn't pass and if the base number of enrollees is based...

    Are you a true West Sider??

    Received this today - someone drove around the westside to capture all of the damage of the '74 tornado

    Beacons of light and closing/consolidating of parishes

    and here we go ….. St I’s tuition letters went out with a $850 increase to around $5200+ annually - 20% increase from the prior year, no multi child discount as well. Letter pointed to Ed Choice and other state programs for assistance. What’s more interesting is a vague comment in the letter...

    2024 Basketball

    This is a very good basketball team that plays excellent team basketball - I just hope their inability to consistently hit free throws doesn't cost them in the end.

    We will see if it is a big deal for these schools as the OHSAA Board of Directors just approved the expansion proposal https://www.ohsaa.org/news-media/articles/ohsaa-board-of-directors-approves-expansion-proposal

    Elder Enrollment Strategy

    Never meant to insinuate that a D2 state championship is not as hard to achieve as a D1 or even the D2 state champion couldn't beat the D1 state champion (2016 LaSalle). I would think a school like Seton & Elder that have had a long tradition of competing at the D1 level would not like the...

    Elder Enrollment Strategy

    The other dilemma Seton (as well as Elder and other schools) are dealing with is the possibility of competing at lower levels in the state tournament. While winning a state championship is great, I am sure these schools do not want "DII" on the banner. Accepting students from the other schools...

    That is great for them - Seton has roughly 18 Catholic Grade Schools they traditionally draw from (includes James & Ignatius but neither St John's Schools) - throw in Rapid Run & Taylor as they have gotten some from these over the years as parents don't want to pay the grade school tuition which...

    Wow that is surprising as the last 3 have been 190+ (I believe)

    The number one factor without a doubt. The swamp might be over 300 million this year in Ohio, 40 or 50 million in the GCL and feeders per year. I will predict within 5 years if the rules don’t change they will be forced to be non-selective(public) and will have to open the books to see what...

    Elder Enrollment Strategy

    I don't think the strategy is going to continue this indefinitely but they need to get "butts in the seats". Get them into school, create a great experience for the young men and hopefully take this momentum into future years and continued enrollment increases. While offering scholarship $'s...

    Maybe the increase in tuition is more of a Beacons of Light thing versus a money grab from Ed Choice as it is all happening at the same time. Grant it I have been away from serving on a Parish Finance committee for a while but I believe westside schools still set tuition based on combining the...

    Just curious how they could do this to the tune of 60-70+ which is an increase of 10% over the published numbers? I am assuming Elder has already done some of this in these numbers (BTW I have no idea how these are calculated)) Given the fact that the number of D1 schools are going to be...

    The OHSAA website has the enrollment numbers - I just stacked ranked the high schools. Based on the numbers they published, Elder was ranked # 78. The link I found is now password protected (2022-23 and 2023-24 OHSAA Member School Enrollments) - maybe they are updating it. When looking at...

    Elder Enrollment Strategy

    There was a high school coaches clinic in Columbus a couple weeks ago and they talked in length about the OHSAA expansion/realignment of the number of state champions in numerous sports. Heard they said that it is not going out for a membership vote but will be voted on by a special committee...

    Elder Enrollment Strategy

    The difference between St X and Elder is the logic behind granting money to families. Elder uses that piece of garbage FASFA - St X bases their giving on how much tuition you are paying to catholic schools (plus kids) vs your take home pay. Know several parents that decided to send their sons to...
