Lottery Drawing

All Grades TK-12

TK-12 applicants interested in attending GHC and regardless of their home address must submit an application. Although enrollment preferences per our charter petition are available (see below), a lottery for admission will be utilized if there are more applicants than available space.

Grades 9-12, High School Program Applicants

Please note that even though there is a preference for applicants who reside in the pre-charter attendance boundary, an application is required by everyone.

There are a limited number of spaces available. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces, a random selection process (i.e. lottery drawing) will be held. Only one (1) entry per student is allowed. The applicant will be disqualified if more than one application is submitted, or if falsified or incorrect information is provided.

Siblings

An enrollment application must be submitted for each sibling. Applications for all grade levels (TK-12) are being accepted for the 2023–2024 school year. Applicants with a sibling graduating in June 2023 are not eligible for a sibling preference.

Late Entries

Applications may be submitted after the December 2 deadline and will be considered after the scheduled January drawing. At that time, late applications will be placed on another, late application waitlist in the order they are received. Applicants on the late application waitlist will be contacted after the original waitlist for those who applied on time has been exhausted. 

Admitted and Waitlist

From the January drawing, a list will be created of those students who will be offered admission and those who will be on a waitlist. Students who are being offered admission will be notified approximately one (1) to two (2) weeks after the drawing. Students on the waitlist will be contacted by email as openings become available.

Note: If you are looking for information about enrolling in GHC for the current 2022-2023 school year, contact the Attendance Office at attendance@ghcTK12.com.

COVID-19 Vaccination and Updated (Bivalent) Booster

Vaccination against COVID-19 is one of the most important strategies for preventing severe illness and optimizing the outcomes for those who become infected. This is especially important for those who are part of high-risk or vulnerable populations, or individuals with family members in these groups. 

GHC staff, students who are 12 years of age and older, and other individuals who are learning or providing services on a GHC campus are required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. Read the full Student Vaccination Policy here

Visitors and spectators are required to adhere to the School’s updated COVID-19 safety policy. Although COVID-19 boosters are not required at this time, individuals eligible for a booster are encouraged to obtain one. 

A new COVID-19 booster that targets the highly contagious omicron subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5, as well as the original coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) strain, is now recommended for individuals who are 12 years of age and older and who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Both Pfizer and Moderna released an updated (bivalent) booster, targeting two coronavirus strains. These bivalent boosters are authorized to be given at least two months after the second dose in a primary vaccine series or the last booster shot. More information about the updated COVID-19 booster, including clinic locations, will be communicated in the near future.
