Our annual Open House is an excellent opportunity to explore our facilities, meet our teachers and staff, and ask questions. You are invited to drop in at any time during the event and are welcome to bring your children so they can explore as well. Schedule a classroom visit so you can experience the joy of learning that we work hard to provide for each of our students!
If your family is unable to pay full tuition due to income limitations or other short- or long-term challenges, you can apply for assistance to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the amount you can afford. Each year we hold fundraisers to meet the needs of ourschool families. Prayerfully consider how much you can afford and ask the school office for an application if you wish to apply for assistance. All requests are confidential.

GLPK received $5,000 which provided scholarship money to three families and enabled their children the opportunity to attend our preschool & kindergarten.
