As you explore different options of where your daughter will continue her education, we invite you to the various events we offer throughout the admission season. The events offered, as well as the visit opportunities for students and parents, are an opportunity to engage with GPS faculty, staff, students, and parents and experience GPS in its unrehearsed and authentic state. We believe this is the best way to answer the question of fit and to experience the tangible sense of community.
Below you will find the Admission Calendar which lists all upcoming admission events, student visit days, and other important dates for the current admission season. You will receive formal invitations and more information for admission events throughout the admission process.

Our typical admission period is from August through March. If you are interested in applying to or visiting GPS outside of the admission season, please contact the Admission Office at admission@gps.edu or 423.634.7644
