    Question About Private Schools in KY?

    I just heard this today and was wondering if the source is correct. There are 11 private schools in Kentucky who play football. Is this true?

    To be quite honest I thought the number would be a little higher

    Okay, I can see that that is a TABOO thread but it should be discussed here in the football forum. I don't want to debate private vs public. I just want to know how many private schools in Kentucky play football.

    4A ... Trinity, St. Xavier.

    3A ... Lexington Catholic, Covington Catholic

    2A ... Owensboro Catholic, DeSales, Christian Academy of Louisville

    A ... Louisville Holy Cross, Kentucky Country Day, Bethlehem, Lexington Christian, Covington Holy Cross, Newport Catholic

    Non-district ... Beth Haven, Evangel

    That is 15. I don't think I've forgotten anyone.

    Thanks!!

    Based on the 11 I got that play football they break down like this:

    St. X
    Trinty
    Cov Cath
    Lex Cath
    Lex Christian
    Bethlehem
    Beth Haven
    DeSales
    Holy Cross
    Kentucky Country Day?
    Millersburg Military?
    New Port Central Cath

    Those are the 12 schools playing football I just got from the KHSAA web site.

    But I believe that there are way more than 16 schools competeing in KHSAA sports.

    DING!! After all this time, we finally have the correct answer...Thanks titletownclown! It sure took you long enough to verbalize that which was obvious to many of us...plus tradition,discipline, and hard work.

    I want to say there's 40-45 total Privates in KY. Obviously most are small, non-football schools.

    This would include all-female schools. There are several small private schools that do not play football. I believe the 48 number is close if not exactly correct.

    I think Ft. Campbell and someone else was also considered a private school.

    Ohhhhh... I get it! For a second I thought you were crying about privates having unfair advantages.
