Global Ambassadors Language Academy

Global Ambassadors Language Academy (GALA) was founded by Meran Rogers, a parent, educator, nonprofit administrator and community leader. In 2010, as an Executive Fellow of the Cleveland Leadership Center, Rogers began to lay the foundation for GALA by researching best practices, developing the initial plan, and garnering support in the community.

In 2012, the founding Board of Directors was formed. In December 2015, GALA submitted a charter school application (Academic, Operational and Financial Plan) for sponsorship to the Ohio Council for Community Schools (OCCS) and in May 2016 received Sponsorship to open in August 2016.

    So lucky to have a free language immersion school in our neighborhood. The economic, cultural, and ethnic diversity is excellent and important for a rounded healthy education inclusive of heart, mind, and spirit.

    I made a good choice on choosing this school for my daughter. She started in kindergarten in the Spanish program, now she's in 3rd grade and she speaks Spanish very well. I am really satisfied with the program. If you are looking for a good immersion school for your kids Gala is the one.
