IHSAA Conference-Independent Schools

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The schools listed below are members of the Indiana High School Athletic Association and are not members of a conference. Of these, several were at one time members of a conference but became independent because of budget and travel concerns.

Indiana's Class System[edit]

Indiana's classes are determined by student enrollment, broken into classes of roughly equal size depending on sport. The 2011-12 school year marks a change in the classification period, as schools are reclassified in all class sports biennially instead of quadrennially.

It is also important to note that some schools (mostly private) are placed in classes higher than their enrollment. This is due to a new IHSAA rule that took effect for the 2012-13 year that dictates that school that wins two state championships in a row is automatically moved up into the next class.

Classes for 2011-12 through 2012-13: Most sports:

  • Class A: <325 Students.
  • Class AA: 325-565 Students.
  • Class AAA: 566-1089 Students.
  • Class AAAA: >1089 Students.

Football:

  • Class A: 71-408 students
  • Class AA: 408-555 students
  • Class AAA: 557-808 students
  • Class AAAA: 809-1489 students
  • Class AAAAA: 1496-1929 students
  • Class AAAAAA 1935-4808 students

Soccer:

  • Class A: 62-721 students
  • Class AA: 721-4808 students
