GTA Celebrates 15 Years!

October 21, 2015, 12:00 am

Friday, October 2, 2015 was our birthday!  Fifteen years ago, Grand Traverse Academy officially opened in our permanent location with 290 students in grades K-6.  Thanks to so many supportive area families, we have grown to become a PreK-12 school, more than quadrupled our enrollment, and added two new wings, with a third on the way soon!  Over the last 15 years, we have also made many enhancements to our program, including gifted learning classrooms for Elementary students, a full array of athletic offerings, dual enrollment at NMC and the TBA Career-Tech Center, educational travel opportunities, a greenhouse, K-12 STEM education through Project Lead the Way...the list goes on and on!  We celebrated at carpool on the 2nd with special music and balloons and gave out Smarties® candy.  Staff and the entire student body enjoyed cupcakes.  We thank our families for being a part of our success by sharing their children with us!
