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

Snow Day/Delay Policy

Grand Traverse Academy follows the decisions of the Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) on weather-related closings and delays.  We will close school when TCAPS closes and delay opening when TCAPS delays. Carpool will start at the delayed time; for example, if there is a 2-hour delay, carpool will start at 9:50 am instead of 7:50.  If TCAPS closes during a delay period, GTA will also close.

Note:  If TCAPS delays opening on a Friday, Grand Traverse Academy will be closed for the day. 

Announcements will air on local television and radio stations.
