A high school diploma alone is insufficient to ensure success in college or the workplace. To thrive in our 21st-century global society and post-secondary education, young people require a more comprehensive high school education.

Philadelphia’s youth need and deserve an education that can help bridge the “exposure gap,” enabling them to break free from the limitations of their local neighborhoods.

GLA International provides a forward-thinking high school education that empowers Philadelphia’s youth to do just that.

GLA International’s curriculum is demanding, stimulating, culturally relevant, and open to all Philadelphia youth. It equips students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to lead a dignified life, pursue their dreams, and make a meaningful contribution to society.
