We welcome all students who want to commit themselves to an exciting, personalized, project-based, technology-rich education. Together with your parents, you will have an opportunity to explore new, engaging and effective ways of learning at the Global Learning Charter Public School.

As a public school, there is no tuition. Applicants are selected through a blind lottery that takes place each year in March. There are no interviews, admissions tests, or review of a student's previous school records. We welcome all students, including English language learners and special education students. All students in New Bedford entering grades 5 through 10 are welcome to apply. We encourage families to start their school planning early. The best chance for a student to enter GLCPS is by applying in the 4th grade to start in the 5th grade.
Completed applications must include one form of proof of residency.
