Hi,
We're looking to move to Cincinnati in June 2011. Married, two kids (freshman high school Fall 2011 and 3rd grader), dogs and cats. We are thinking we might rent but with the economy and houses so much better than Michigan, we may purchase. We're looking for a good neighborhood, private schools for the kids (both are in Catholic school in Michigan) and an area that's not a too far commute from Cincy Children's Hospital.

Let me know what you can. Our price range for a purchase is nothing over $180k and rent nothing over $1500/month but we'd need pets to be okay with the rent.
Thanks,

I forgot to add that the prices aren't set in stone, we're flexible, we just really want to find a good neighborhood with good schools for the kids. That's pretty much the most important aspect of the move and location...school choices. Son plays football and that would be an added bonus of a good school with fb too. Daughter plays soccer and would love to get into some travel leagues in Ohio, she's already involved in Ann Arbor with soccer. Thanks again

I would look at Green Township. Get array of Catholic schools and lots of houses under $180,000.

If you're a fan of Ann Arbor, the closest thing you'll get to it in Cincinnati is the Sycamore School District which includes Sycamore Township, Symmes Township, Blue Ash and Montgomery. Not a ton of options for a house under $180k though.

As for good catholic schools with a good football team, I would look at St. Xavier , Moeller, and Elder. St. X and Elder are consistanly among the best football teams in the state.

All three are all boy schools. I am not sure how you feel about that, but if you want a co-ed catholic school, Roger Bacon, McNicholas, Baden, and Purcell Marian are your only four choices. These choices don't have nearly as good of football teams though.

I would consider Madeira. Archbishop Moeller HS, all male, is within reasonable distance in adjacent Montgomery. St Gertrude Parish has a primary Catholic school right in Madeira. The commute down I-71 to the Pill Hill area and Cincinnati Children's is reasonable. Caution HS football in Cincy is a big time operation and making the better teams requires some ability.

Montgomery itself is a fine neighborhood, but I feel you might have a better chance of locating within your price range in Madeira.

Any tips for Catholic primary education in the area where St. Xavier or Elder are located and the neighborhood in those areas? What's the general concensus on that? We love family neighborhoods where kids are outside playing, good parks, close to things to do and not in a rural area.

Default elder and st x

Elder is a neighborhood parochial school, and its feeder schools are Our Lady of Lourdes, St. William, St. Aloysius-on-the-Ohio, Our Lady of Victory, Our Lady of Visitation, St. Antoninus, St. Dominic, St. Simon, St. Teresa, and St. Lawrence. I don't know if Holy Family or Resurrection parishes still have schools.
St. Xavier is a regional boys school and has students from all over Greater Cincinnati. But the parishes close to St. X are St. Vivian, St. James in White Oak, St. James in Wyoming, St. Margaret Mary, Church of the Assumption, St. Ignatius, St. Therese (which isn't the same as St. Teresa) and Our Lady of the Rosary. I don't know if St. Bartholomew parish still has a school.
