Most support moving Cardinal Mooney High School to suburb, survey finds
By DENISE DICK
A study on the feasibility of moving Cardinal Mooney High School to southern Mahoning County determined that most of those interviewed support the prospect.
“There’s a lot of interest in building a new school” in the county’s southern tier, said the Rev. Gerald DeLucia, Mooney president.
Earlier this year, the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown hired Catholic School Management Inc. of Madison, Conn., to conduct a feasibility study of moving the school versus renovating and updating the existing structure on the city’s South Side.
A group of alumni had approached the Diocese about moving the school to where the county’s population is moving.
Father DeLucia said that of the 60 alumni and parents of current students interviewed, between 70 percent and 80 percent supported the move.
The next phase of the study will determine if the demographic shift and enrollment projections would support the move.
