The criteria used was as followed:
1. NJSIAA power points for 2010 and 2011 for each school.
2. The power points were added together for both years and then the teams were ranked. 1-9 in American Conference and 10-18 in National Conference.
3. No public plays 3 non-public's and Thanksgivings stay intact and everyone gets a full schedule.
4. Cross-over is school in same position in other Conference, for competitive balance.
(Ex. Team one in the American, Holy Spirit would play team one in the National, Lower Cape May)
5. No team was moved arbitrarily.
