The Georgia High School Association has released its region alignments for the next three years. Last week, the GHSA released the new classifications. Several South and Middle Georgia programs will play very different schedules from 2024-2026.



Several schools have filed appeals requesting to play in different regions within the same classification. Here are the region alignments before the GHSA makes any decisions regarding those appeals. Schools with an asterisk do not play football.
