Enrollment Process

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at Grand Traverse Academy!  

Grand Traverse Academy's open enrollment period for the 2018-19 school year begins on Monday, January 8 and ends on Thursday, March 15, 2018, with a lottery drawing planned for Friday, March 16, 2018 if the number of applications exceeds the number of spaces available.  Results of the drawing will be mailed to families within one week of this date.  The lottery will be drawn starting with Kindergarten applications, with preference given to siblings of enrolled students.  If space is not available for siblings, they will be placed at the top of the waiting list for their grade level.  It is possible at times for these siblings to move up on the waiting list ahead of other students, as it is always our desire to keep families together.  Students who are placed on the waiting list and are not enrolled during the 2018-19 school year will need to re-apply for the following school year.  The waiting list is in effect for the 2018-19 school year only.

Any applications received after March 15, 2018 will be processed on the date received and the student will be added to any waiting list for the appropriate grade level in the order that they are received. 

Note that we are still accepting enrollment applications for the 2017-18 school year.
