School Uniform Policy

Students and staff at Grand Traverse Academy wear uniforms daily.  We have chosen uniforms because they:

  • Allow students and adults to focus on learning
  • Help eliminate judgement based on attire
  • Improve the safety and security of the school
  • Improve behavior and discipline in the school
  • Help develop a sense of unity
  • Insure that inappropriate clothing will not be worn to school

Weather-Related Closings Policy

Grand Traverse Academy follows the decisions of the Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) on weather-related closings and will close school (including Mighty Mustangs Preschool and Quality Care) when TCAPS closes.  When school is closed due to weather, elementary and junior high extra-curricular activities will be cancelled and decisions about any scheduled high school events will be made and communicated by 12:00 noon.   

Parents will be notfied via email and voicemail messages prior to 6:00 am when possible, and information will be posted on the GTA website and Facebook page.  School closings are also announced on local television and radio stations.
