The Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) is now accepting applications for prospective students in grades 5-10 for the 2019-2020 school year.

Applications are available at the school's main campus located at 190 Ashley Blvd. in New Bedford or on the website, HERE. Proof of New Bedford residencies, such as a driver's license or utility bill, is required as part of the application process.

Prospective students, even those who already have a sibling attending the school, must complete a 2019-2020 application to be entered into the enrollment lottery. Also, students who were on last year’s waitlist must submit a new application to be included in the lottery process for the 2019-2020 school year.

There will be an Open House and Winter Arts Show event on Thursday, February 7, at 6 pm. Prospective students and families are invited to attend this scheduled tour with staff and student ambassadors.

The Open House and Winter Arts Show for prospective students and their families includes a presentation about the school's curriculum and culture. Families can also visit classrooms, view current student work, and learn about after-school programs. In the event of inclement weather, the Open House and Arts Show will be held on Tuesday, February 12, at 6 pm.

The GLCPS Winter Arts Show is held in conjunction with the Open House so that prospective students and families can meet and speak with current students and parents, and view performances by the Global Karate Academy, GLCPS band, and other student groups.
