Tipton Academy Student Enrollment


2021-2022 Open Enrollment

Dear Prospective Tiger Families,

We are very excited at the possibility of having you join the Tipton Tiger family!  Each year, we conduct a re-enrollment period where current families share with us their intent to return for the following school year. That reserves their space for the upcoming school year. If they are planning to move or decide to change schools for any reason, they respond and then we determine how many spaces we have available for new students. We then conduct a two-week "open-enrollment" period. This will be from March 12, 2021-March 26, 2021. During this time, we take New Student Open Enrollment Form Applications for available spaces for the upcoming school year.

This two-week period is designed to work with our prospective families to allow everyone to have the fairest opportunity to receive an open space. If you submit your application at 8am on March 12th or at 3pm on March 26th, they are both treated as if they arrived at the same time. All applications received during the two-week open enrollment period will be treated the same. Any application received AFTER 3pm on March 26th will be provided a first come first serve priority to receiving an open spot for the upcoming school year.

If, during the two-week open enrollment period, we receive more applications for a specific grade level than space available, we will place all of those student names into a random selection lottery. Students will be placed in the grade level in the order they are drawn with the exception of the sibling preference policy. (see below) Once all spaces are filled, the remaining students will be placed on the waitlist in the order they are pulled, with the exception of the sibling preference policy.

Sibling Preference Policy: At Tipton, as a family school, we strive to keep families together. Once one sibling has received an available space, it moves up the priority of any additional siblings. It does not guarantee a space because we have classroom limitations, but it does move them up to the next available space based on the rule.

To begin the process, all you have to do is complete the following questions that provide us necessary information to accurately count students per grade level. You will need to complete a SEPARATE form for each individual child you would like to enroll. Once we have completed the two-week open enrollment period, we will contact parents that have applied and let them know the next step. If your child receives a space, it will be held for a designated period of time. Your child is however, not enrolled. You MUST complete a registration packet in order to fully register your child to attend Tipton Academy. It will be provided to you once your student is eligible for a spot.

That was quite a bit of information! If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact our main offices Tipton EAST (GSRP Prek-3rd grade) 734-261-0500 or Tipton WEST (4th-8th grade) 734-796-7676.
