I don't know about here in Charlotte but back in New Jersey where I grew up private schools did give scholarships, both athletic and academic.

There is an issue right now with private schools being able to take students regardless of where they live, and therefore having the opportunity to stack the deck relative to public schools. I think there is supposed to be a hearing/vote on this soon.

hmmm I did not realize this, this may explain some things. Maybe there is an even bigger push for signing them on this year if there is to be a hearing/vote soon. Do you know if there is a link about this at all?

I am not aware of, and have never heard any rumors about, any "recruiting".

Scholarships for needy students, yes, but not just because a kid is a good athlete.

Well, no. I can't find anything on it, but I know I read it within the last couple days. I think.

Default Catholic Doesn't

I don't believe Catholic does. I'm saying that because I went there, and everyone who was on the sports teams had pretty much attended the MACS system since Kindergarten, there were no (at least from what I could tell when I graduated in 05) athletes who just randomly started attending high school there. I'm not sure if there were any families who got price cuts to stay, but it certainly didn't seem like anyone was recruited in. I can say this with a fair amount of confidence because we tended to get no more than 5 new students a year in per grade level, and they were usually people who moved in from out of state, so there was no constant come and go of students and you knew who was who.

NCHSAA reviews Charlotte Catholic’s membership due to private school status | CharlotteObserver.com & The Charlotte Observer Newspaper (http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/04/20/3187884/nchsaa-reviews-charlotte-catholics.html - broken link)

I did not realize that for these schools in the NCHSAA (so it looks like most private schools are not part of the NCHSAA) that students that receive financial aid are not eligible for athletics at all.

But overall, of course private schools have an advantage by being able take students from all over, but that doesn't mean they recruit. If they are traditionally good at a sport then kids will want to go there.
