The male and female enrollments of our member schools are used to determine OHSAA governance classifications (AAA, AA, A) and the OHSAA tournament divisions for each sport. The enrollment figures are based on the number of students in grades 9, 10 and 11 as of October 31, 2023. These numbers are provided by the Ohio Department of Education. After the enrollment numbers become final, the enrollment figures will be used to determine OHSAA tournament divisions for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 school years. For the OHSAA tournament sports in which competitive balance will apply, the competitive balance roster will be added to the ODE base enrollment counts prior to the determination of tournament divisions for those sports.
OHSAA Member School principals will be notified of their school's enrollment figures posted below for review on Monday, January 29. Schools that believe the ODE has miscalculated their enrollment can file an appeal with the OHSAA no later than Friday, Feburary 16, 2024 using the required APPEAL FORM. Following the appeals, the OHSAA Board of Directors will approve the FINAL enrollment numbers and classifications. OHSAA tournament representation and division assignments will then be calculated and presented to the Board of Directors for their approval in the coming months (timeline below).
The below numbers represent preliminary enrollments counts and classifications for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 school years. This data will be replaced with final enrollment counts in late spring 2024.
**Schools marked with a ** had additional students "added back" to their base enrollment count. These "add back" students attend either an online school sponsored by the district or a non-traditional school sponsored by the district which does not offer sports. Both these classifictions of students are permitted a participation opportunity back at the assigned OHSAA member school and are therefore added back to the base enrollment count.
