The Southeast Iowa Superconference, also known as the SEISC is a 20 team athletics and activities conference based in southeastern Iowa. The conference, which was created in 1995 to meet the needs of its 22 founding members, is made up of 1A, 2A and 3A schools.

History

The SEISC was founded in 1992 to provide an upgrade in football schedules and to provide competition for non-athletic events such as speech, music, and art. Since the conference's founding, there have been a lot of changes. For one, the Iowa High School Athletic Association took complete control of the football scheduling by implementing the current district format. Also, many of the schools have since stopped participating in the fine arts portion of the conference. This has led to debate over the last five years as to whether the conference in its current state even makes sense. With 20 teams in the league, there is no way to play every conference team throughout the course of the season. Since the conference's founding, three schools have closed (Ft. Madison Aquinas and Marquette of West Point in 2005, and Cardinal Stritch in Keokuk in 2006.) The conference added Maharishi and Iowa Mennonite in 1996-97 and Ft. Madison Holy Trinity joined the league in 2005 as Aquinas's successor. Harmony High School consolidated with Van Buren schools in 2016.
