Why does Newport Catholic not have their own football field yet?

Page 9 of The Breds football program is 82 years old. Why are they still playing their home games on another team's field? I saw some comments on this in the thr... 151 comments | 20912 Views | Go to page 1 →

    To me, it doesnt seem fiscally responsible to build a field on site. If you wanted to upgrade the practice facilities some sured, probably needs it, but not a new field on the hill.

    After reading all the speculation and rumors it is interesting to think it could all happen overnight... administration came up with idea if building a field is even possible... someone approached Carlisle to see his vision of the possibility. After reviewing and seeing possibility engineering is going in and making sure possibility is a reality. If realty, then you begin fundraising... Carlisle isn't funding the project. It will take a village and huge amount of support.

    Thought it was already stated on here that Carlisle was footing the entire bill . He was ready to roll its approved and starting soon . Seems like a lot of conflicting information. Guess we will see.

    On a related note, is Mr. Carlisle looking to adopt a son? Asking for a friend.

    Or you could wait 20 years, look back and say "Gee, we should have built the football field".

    The bishop is committed to a parochial school accessible to students living in Newport. NCC isn't going anywhere.

    The Bishop will be at NewCath tomorrow celebrating Mass, as well as engineers looking at the property.

    Things that make you go UMM!

    No one gets free tuition. They do offer financial assistance that is done through a 3rd party company. I hardly consider this a inner city school, the % of assistant students or students who qualify for reduced/free lunch is very low. They have several options on how to pay including over 8 mths. Books/fees is approximately 10-12% of tuition so on top of tuition you will pay approx $780 in fees/books, additional charges for Dual credit and AP courses. They have been clearing land since last year. But rumors are always swirling. The school had a state of the Art "college" style library with full length extended windows finished early in the school year, all new Chrome books for each student ( 2nd yr for this), updated and new Wi-Fi, new roof, plans for new sound system in gym and gym upgrade.

    You guys are cracking me up, in 2009- 2010 attendance was 425, 2010-2011 we had the largest freshman class on record of I believe 112. In 2016-2017 we dropped down to 327 students, the very next year 2017-2018 we had the smallest freshman class to date 54 students. Our current attendance is 362 students. So it increased 35 students ( even though record low freshman class) . NCC isn't going anywhere. It will ebb and flow like any other school. We are small and yet our school has so much to offer. They get a lot of one on one. You are not a #.

Some it will never be an issue others its becoming tough. Ncc probably at its best was at 425-450 kids. Thats a lot of money lost from 175-200 kids of a years tuition. Now say some builder goes to a game on that hill sees this beautiful view of the city and says I could sell some high dollar condos and luxury apartments up here and make a ton of money. He offers big dollars for this property and lets be honest this property is very valuable. What if the property is sold and the football field which cost one guy millions is now condos 1A-12A. How would this guy feel about his donation being sold and gone 10 years from now. I'm not buying that there is no way any schools are possibly being closed or merged. In Cincinnati this coming fall of 2018 you have the merger of Mercy and McAuley coming. Who would have thought that would happen. If you have 2 schools in brossart and ncc who used to have 400 or so kids and they now have 250 or so who can guarantee one doesn't close and they combine.
    You are wrong about enrollment. I posted up to date #'s above.

    So 2016-17 enrollment was 327 next years freshmen class was 54 smallest to date yet enrollment went up to 362 in 2017-18? So 50 or so transfers or how is this possible? How do you get a smaller freshmen class than the senior class that graduated and go up 35?
