Director of Residence Life’s Corner


Another school years end is approaching. We have a number of large activities to finish out the year here at GILA. It has been an amazing year so far. I want to thank each of our families for allowing your children to come to GILA.

Our enrollment process is underway. Please re-enroll with us and have family and friends come join in the great experience at GILA.

If you are planning on attending graduation this year please call to Angie at the school 656-2053. We do offer housing for families of graduates in the GILA Gym.

Yours in Education,
