During Open Enrollment, if GALA receives more applications than there are seats available for any given grade level or program, we will hold a random lottery as required by law. Once the lottery is held, we will contact all applicants to notify them of their enrollment status. All applications received after 4:00 p.m. on the date of the lottery deadline (April 1, 2020) will be entered into the second pool of first come, first serve applicants and wait-listed by the date they are received.

Accepted families will receive a phone call and email after the lottery, notifying them of the student(s) acceptance. Please make sure the contact information you provide on this application is current. You will have one week to accept or decline your seat. If no response is received after one week, your application will be moved to the waitlist.
