Why Grand Traverse Academy

School uniforms

School uniforms help build a sense of community, reduce distractions and increase safety. Students and staff wear uniforms daily at GTA.

Multi-age classrooms

Teaching students according to their ability rather than their age allows for individualized instruction and learning goals, better meeting the educational needs of each of our students.

Character education

Good character is the foundation for success in life. At GTA, traits such as respect, kindness, responsibility, integrity, and work ethic are modeled, taught, and graded on a regular basis.
