Current students are given the opportunity to re-enroll in late winter, with preference given to them and their siblings.
The school holds an advertised open enrollment period in the spring, during which any Michigan resident may apply. This year's open enrollment period is April 4-29.
In the event that any grade is over-subscribed, a public lottery will be held May 3 at 5 p.m. to determine enrollment and a waiting list.
Following the May 3 lottery dates, remaining seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The academy does not charge tuition nor discriminate in admissions policies or practices on the basis of intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, status as a handicapped person, religion, creed, race, sex, color or national origin.
