How to Apply

Application Process

Being identified for gifted and talented services does not automatically qualify a student for enrollment in the Global Leadership Academy (GLA.). Because the GLA is considered a campus of choice for students in grades K-5, it requires a separate application in addition to GT identification. There are limited spaces at each grade level. Once available spaces are filled, students interested in the GLA will be placed on a waiting list.

2022-2023 Timeline

  • Application Window: March 21 - April 15, 2022

  • GT Screening: All GT screening for current TISD kindergarten students will begin in March. Families of students applying to attend GLA will be contacted regarding screening appointment times, dates, and locations. Testing will take place on April 21, April 29, May 6, and May 13.

  • The committee will meet in May to assess candidates. Families will be notified of the decision by June 6, 2022.
