In April 2006, North Catholic High School announced that the Diocese of Pittsburgh approved the move of the school from Troy Hill to Cranberry Township in southern Butler County.[3][1] The driving reason for the proposed move is the declining enrollment at the school and changing demographics suggesting a greater percentage of kids enrolling from Pittsburgh's outer suburbs. The cost to finance the move (expected to be as much as $30 million) will fall entirely on the school, with no financial help coming from the Diocese of Pittsburgh. A final decision on the move, which is not expected to be complete before 2010, is expected in June 2007.
