Welcome to New Branches Charter Academy

At New Branches Charter Academy we are privileged to accept students into our school from anywhere in the state of Michigan. We welcome families from all walks of life and value the diversity we have in our community.

The application process is as follows:

New Branches School is required by law to hold a lottery selection drawing for available positions when applications exceed the number of openings available. However once a student is enrolled in our school they do not have to participate in the lottery again. Also, siblings of current students are given preference to open positions and are also omitted from the lottery system.

  • Applications are taken throughout the school year.
  • Applications can be accessed from our website by clicking on the appropriate school year application link or you may call or stop by our school to complete an application.
  • If you are applying during a current school year please call the school at (616) 243-6221 to find out about openings and the application process.

* For the 2016-17 School year: Spring Lottery will not be necessary
