Open Enrollment for 2022-23 ended on Friday, February 11. However, families interested in having their child attend GLC may still submit an application. If space is not available in their child’s grade, she/he will be placed on a waiting list by grade level. Seats will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.


As a reminder, current GLC students in grades TK-7 are automatically enrolled for the next school year. Once admitted, students do not need to re-enroll each year.
