GLA Student Application Home Page

There are two new student applications available based on the school year that a student intends to attend.

Please be sure to apply using the proper application below.


The GLA 2019-20 New Student Application

(The Next School Year)

In 2019-2020, Great Lakes Academy will hold lotteries for Kindergarten through 6th grade students.

All applicants must be residents of the city of Chicago. 

GLA’s preference is to keep families together; therefore, per Illinois charter law, admissions priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current GLA students.

The new student application for grades K-6 for the 2019-20 school year will be available on Monday, January 7!

The GLA 2018-19 New Student Application

(This Current School Year)
