Open enrollment will begin in 2014. Plans are to enroll no more than 100 students per grade (6-10) for the first year. If enrollment applications exceed the seats available, a lottery would be held to decide admissions.

Enrollment will be open to all Michigan residents. Except for a foreign exchange student who is not a United States citizen, a public school academy cannot enroll a pupil who is not a Michigan resident.

JPEC, being an equal opportunity educational institution, shall be committed to good-faith affirmative action efforts to seek out, create and serve a diverse student body.
