Mooney study complete, no decision made on move

YOUNGSTOWN

There’s been no recommendation about whether Cardinal Mooney High School will move, but a study has determined that the Catholic population has shifted from the city to the suburbs.

Nick Wolsonovich, superintendent of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown, Office of Catholic Schools, said a study undertaken about a year ago includes several components that will factor into the decision on whether to move the school.

Those factors include enrollment projections, demographics, finances, feasibility and fundraising.

“All of those components must be weighed in making the recommendation,” the superintendent said.

The demographics portion of the study has found that the preponderance of Mahoning County’s Catholic population has shifted from the city to the suburbs over the past several years, Wolsonovich said.

He stressed though that that’s only one consideration in the decision.
