I think almost all of the girls that are at Ladywood will end up at St. Catherine (which opened a few years ago and could join the girls' Central next year) or Mercy.

The other all-boys schools seem stable (CC, BBR, DLS, OLSM, and UDJ are all Class A while Loyola is a small C).

Looking back at michigan-football.com, the Archdiocese used to close schools if/when they hit Class D. That practice stopped after the Purge of 1971, in which many Catholic schools closed (from 1971 until DLS moved to Warren, there were no Catholic high schools in Macomb County)
