Application Process


GFS welcomes your application for admission. We seek students who are bright and eager, who demonstrate the potential to engage deeply with our intellectually rigorous academic program, and who will contribute to our vibrant school community.

We want every student at GFS to be successful. To ensure a good match between applicants, their families, and our school's programs and philosophies, we attempt to get to know you and your child in several ways throughout the admissions process. Our Admissions staff is here to help you. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.
