Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico

The Global Learning Charter Public School community is doing its part to help victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. With your help, we are collecting much needed supplies to send to 3.4 million fellow U.S. citizens who are struggling mightily in the devastating aftermath of this storm.

A MESSAGE FROM GLCPS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DR. STEPHEN FURTADO

Welcome to the GLCPS website and the start of the 2017-2018 school year. I am excited that we are beginning the first year of our new five year re-charter, and grateful for all the support we continue to receive from all of our stakeholders.
I'm also excited to share the news that over the next few months, we will be launching new technology projects that will greatly benefit our students and families. This is the result of our new partnership with the University of San Diego, the Qualcomm Corporation, and our very generous benefactor and supporter, Dr. Irwin Jacobs. We will be sure to share details about these programs as they get underway.

"It's one of my favorite school events of the year," said GLCPS Principal Lena Pires.

For many GLCPS students, persevering in and paying for college is very challenging. Your investment in GLCPS helps these students to stay in college. GLCPS continues to strengthen its College and Career Center by integrating college planning into all grade levels, providing more information to parents about college funding, and working more closely with students on college choice. The Mentoring for College Success program for GLCPS college-bound high school students, and the GLCPS Alumni Program offer ongoing support to GLCPS graduates. At GLCPS, families can begin planning for the future when they enter the school, and the support continues long after graduation.
