The schools that represent Region 1A, as listed below, have made a unified decision to move from the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) to the Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) beginning in the 2022-23 school year. After discussion with the GHSA, GISA, and other schools across the state, the Region 1A private schools made this decision due to the changing landscape of the GHSA and in hopes of providing new opportunities for like-minded private schools across the state. The schools of Region 1A are thankful for their association with the GHSA and are eager to continue developing positive relationships with local public and private schools in their communities.

In the weeks and months ahead, the Region 1A private schools will continue discussions with the GISA regarding alignment and structure within their organization. School families at each school as well as other stakeholders will be notified as plans develop.
