Oldham County has soccer, baseball, and fast-pitch softball that sends lots of kids to college on scholarships. Football and basketball are a bit less competitive in part due to the smaller sized schools. Oldham County made the decision years ago to have community high and middle schools rather than mega-schools. While this style doesn't offer as many state athletic championships, it does mean wonderful academic opportunities for so many more kids.

Thanks to everyone for all the helpfull information. I've been able to look at schools, check out neighborhoods and houses, and even malls and other activities all from your suggestions! We've been able to get the family around the computer to look at these different things~'look kids, this house has a pool!' It's made the idea of moving much more comfortable for everyone. Thanks again for the help!

Yes, Trinity has a legacy of winning at football, soccer, and baseball which is good, and as the father of two former Trinity students, I will put Oldham County Schools on the same educational level as Trinity and for 10,000 less per student/year.

Thanks for the post on Hillcrest in Prospect. Beautiful homes in what looks like a wonderful subdivision, with great schools. I so appreciate all the help! Can't wait to visit in person!

Are there any newer subdivisions in Oldham county? We looked in Moser Farms and wasn't impressed. Glen Oaks and Hillcrest are out of our price range. We would be commuting to southern Indiana. We have also looked in Craigs Creek, Worthington Place but are considering Rock Springs. I know several of these developments are not in Oldham County but were told the reside school would be Ballard. Any help would be appreciated.

Just for clarity: Only part of Moser Farms is in Oldham County, and the other subdivisions listed are in Jefferson County. I recognize that skycarter understands this, but others may not.

My friends just moved into Rock Springs, prices start around 300K for a smaller ranch home (3 BDRM 2 BA) , a lot of the lots have walk outs which is nice, and the houses arent all the same looking, they have different architectual styles which makes the neighborhood look nicer and more original.
