Enrollment Process

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

2022-23 School Year

Our lottery drawing for the 2022-23 school year took place on March 11, 2022. However, space is still available in some grades. Please call us at (231) 932-6900 with questions or to make an appointment for a personal tour with a school leader.

2023-24 Enrollment Process

Grand Traverse Academy will accept applications for Fall 2023 enrollment during the open enrollment period of January 3 through March 9, 2023. If, on March 9, 2023, applications exceed the positions available, a random lottery selection will be held.  Any applications received after March 9, 2023 will be processed on the date received and the student will be added to the wait list in the order the application was received.

The lottery drawing will be held at Grand Traverse Academy on March 10, 2023. Names will be drawn until all available classroom positions are filled.  Any remaining names will be drawn to establish wait list priority to be used to fill openings during the school year for which the student applied.  All applications received after the lottery drawing are added in the order in which they are received.

The lottery is drawn starting with kindergarten applications, with preference given to siblings of enrolled students.  If space is not available for siblings, they are placed at the top of the wait list for their grade level.  It is possible at times for these siblings to move up on the wait list ahead of other students, as it is always our desire to keep families together.  Students who are placed on the wait list and are not enrolled during the 2023-24 school year will need to re-apply for the following school year.  The wait list is in effect for the 2023-24 school year only.
