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.
