The message on a new change.org petition asks the diocese to "work with alumni and elected officials of Fairfax City and County to find a viable way to keep Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax."
After two days, the petition has more than 100 signatures. And a related Facebook page has double that number of followers.
The new campus would replace the school’s existing Fairfax City location at 10675 Fairfax Blvd. The relocation wouldn’t occur until about 2020, officials said.

“A new PVI campus would be a larger, state-of-the art school facility that would further strengthen its heritage as a leading Catholic high school," Sister Bernadette McManigal, Superintendent of Schools for the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, stated in a press release in December.
Fairfax City Mayor Scott Silverthorne told Patch at the time that he views this as a big loss for the city.
"I am very disappointed in the Archdiocese's decision," he said. "I fought hard to try to get them to stay."
