VHSL Class 3A

VHSL Class 3A was a VHSL size classification that contained schools participating in VHSL Scholastic Bowl. 51 schools were part of Class 3A in 2017, and the class comprised schools with enrollments roughly between 775 and 1100 students (barring exceptions which allowed certain schools to play up or down). It was founded after the 2014 VHSL Realignment, which overhauled the VHSL classification system. The class was renamed VHSL Class 3 and expanded to four regions in the 2018 VHSL Realignment.

VHSL Class 3A consisted of VHSL Region 3A East and VHSL Region 3A West from 2014-2017. Teams qualified for the regional tournaments based on their rank within their new VHSL conference, unlike the old system, which used districts. Conferences often spanned wider geographical areas than districts, and teams did not necessarily have to play other teams in their conference until the beginning of the playoffs, instead opting to play their district regular season.
