Applying to WMMA


WMAA is a public charter high school, open to any student residing in Michigan. Under our charter, we can have a maximum of 620 students (155 per grade).

Since we routinely receive more applications than there are available spots, a lottery system is enacted per federal and state regulations. To increase the chances of your student being accepted, you should apply by the end of the open enrollment period.

  • When open enrollment ends, applications are counted. If there are fewer applications than openings, all applications will be accepted. If there are more applications than openings, the Academy will conduct a random selection lottery.
  • Preference is given to siblings of students already enrolled.
  • The lottery is a random selection to determine who will be accepted and who will be placed on a waiting list. The Academy will draw names from all students who submit completed application materials prior to the open enrollment deadline.
  • Applications received after the open enrollment deadline are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for any remaining openings. If all spots are filled, the student’s name will be added to the end of the waiting list for his/her grade level.

We encourage interested families to schedule a tour and/or attend one of our Parent & Student Information Nights (see calendar below).
