We MIGHT be moving. We can say yes or we can say no. My Husband is so overworked and looking for more quality of life. It would be with same company he’s been with for almost a decade. He has an opportunity in Louisville KY. We live in Indianapolis right now. My daughter’s Father lives in Indianapolis. He has her every other weekend so 4 nights a month. We were think Southern Indiana with a 30 minute (the longest) drive to Louisville for my husband to do for work every day. OR Louisville but don’t know the area either.
I am willing to meet halfway by driving every other weekend with my daughter’s father to drop her off and pick her up. She goes to a Catholic school right now. Are there any areas that are in Southern Indiana right near Louisville that have Catholic churches/schools? It’s not mandatory but I am Catholic and would like to be able to drive a short distance to church a few times a week. My daughter can go to Public school no worries with that. But I would like a really good one. Any ideas on which zip codes we should start looking at and what to stay away from? Thanks so much! I am not from the Midwest so this is all hard for me to do without having some advice from others.

There are several great Catholic schools in So. IN as well as public schools. Floyd Knobs is probably your best bet for public schools. But other nice areas would be New Albany, Jeffersonville, and Sellersburg.
I don’t know what kind of area you guys live in now or what you’re hoping for – suburban, country, or urban. So. IN is very rural. Lots of suburbs and country. If you’re looking for a tighter neighborhood with short drives you might consider Louisville. If you stay in the city proper it’s not a bad drive over the bridge (to IN) at all. I’d recommend the Highlands or Frankfort Ave.

I don’t have much to add, just wanted to say hi to a fellow Indianapolis bee!
I’d personally be worried about the change from an urban city to a more rural area. After living in small isolated towns throughout the midwest, I wouldn’t want to do that again. But that’s just me!

CHristine2809: Hi thanks! Why wouldn’t you want to? I am just curious? Maybe Louisville would be better that Southern Indiana? I don’t live downtown Indianapolis but I do live in a very small town within Indianapolis. Louisville is a bigger city than Indianapolis, right? What are your thoughts?

hegetsme: I don’t know southern IN very well but Louisville might give you more options, and make it easier on your husband’s commute time. If you are driving to Indianapolis every other weekend, another 15-20 minutes or so probably won’t make that much of a difference. . . the neighborhoods that MrsRight: mentioned are only about 10-15 minutes from the bridge to IN.
There are definitely PLENTY of catholic schools/churches in Louisville.

MrsRight: Thank you! I just put it in mapquest (Louisville to Indianapolis) and it’s only 1 hour 57 min. So if her father and I meet halfway every other weekend it shouldn’t be an issue. Thanks I will look into Franfort Ave and The Highlands. 🙂

I like Jeffersonville, IN, as well as the Floyd Knobs area. There are more options for Catholic schools in Louisville, though… As far as the girls’ high schools, I’ve actually done assessments and presentations at Sacred Heart and Assumption — both very nice schools!
