    • The Open Enrollment period for Global Concepts Charter School will begin at 8:00 am Wednesday January 5, 2022 and at 12:00 Noon Monday March 30, 2022.
    • All completed applications submitted via SchoolMint during that period will be entered into our Admissions Lottery to be conducted April 1, 2022 at 10 am.
    • Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years old by December 1, 2022.
    • Preferences will be given to applicants in the following order:
    • First - Siblings of students already enrolled at GCCS.

    • Third - Students who are children of GCCS employees.
    • Parents are invited—but not required—to attend the Admissions Lottery in the K-8 Building Auditorium at 10 am on April 1, 2021.
    • The order of names generated by the Lottery will create the official Wait List for each grade level. As soon as openings are determined, students will be offered enrollment based on their Wait List order. Families will have 7 school days to register via SchoolMint and provide all required documentation. You will be asked to provide a Student Enrollment Form, the child's Birth Certificate, two proofs of your address, a copy of parent/guardian photo ID, proof of a current physical exam, immunization record and a dental exam, as well as completed Home Language and Residency Questionnaires.
    • The Lackawanna School District does require further documentation. If you own your home, a tax bill or mortgage statement and if you rent, a lease agreement or a notarized Landlord Statement.
    • The Wait List will be used to fill vacancies as they occur until November 15, 2022. At that time, the Wait List will become inactive and new students will no longer be accepted for enrollment.
    • If you would like to tour Global Concepts Charter School, please call our K-8 building at 716-821-1903 or our High School at 716-939-2554 to make arrangements. You can also monitor our website for news of our annual Enrollment Open House. This event will be held in February and will offer information about GCCS and tours of the school buildings.
