The requirements for new schools to apply for membership in the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association can be found here.
VISAA state championship competition is divided into divisions based on member school enrollment by gender. Divisions are set for a two-year cycle.
You can find the current division alignment by clicking here. This alignment will be in place from the Fall 2022 season through the Spring 2024 season and is based on enrollment reported in the fall of 2021.
A member school may petition the Executive Committee to play in a higher division in certain sports, but they must commit to do so for the full two-year cycle. The Executive Committee also hears appeals from schools requesting to be reclassified into a lower division based on sudden decreases in enrollment from their previous enrollment report. Those adjustments will be added to the document linked above as the Executive Committee approves those requests.
PLEASE NOTE: This document includes all VISAA member schools and assigns them a division classification in all sponsored sports, regardless of whether that school participates in that sport. Sport-specific division alignments listing only participating schools will be available on each sport page after schools complete VISAA registration for that year.
