GHSA reclassification could drop Pike teams to Class AA

Barring any changes, Pike County athletic teams will compete in GHSA’s Class AA through the 2026 school year. PC teams currently compete in Class AAA.

PC’s full time enrollment (FTE) is projected to be 1,089 next fall.

That slots PC as the 15th largest school in Class AA in terms of enrollment for 2024.

Pending school appeals, Class AA will be home to 59 schools. The largest school in the classification will be Miller Grove with an FTE of 1,169. The smallest will be Washington County with an FTE of 913.

Beginning in 2024-25, private schools will play in a separate championship tournament in all sports.

Next up is the region realignment process. PC’s current region opponent Jackson will also fall to Class AA. Current region members Mary Persons, Peach County and Upson-Lee will remain in Class AAA.
