Enrollment

Application/ enrollment process details The admissions process has been developed to assist in identifying a student’s needs by taking in information about their previous school experiences and their areas of struggle. A“Psycho-Educational Evaluation” or “FIE” is also required in order to identify the diagnosis, differences, and disabilities the child may have. This information along with a individual parent tour, followed by a 3 day student in-school visit, is required to determine whether or not GLA is the best fit for the child.
