    How to Submit an Application

    Once your account has been created, it will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will be able to check the status of your application and if your child is offered a spot at GCCS, you can complete some of the registration paper work via SchoolMint. 

    Should you need any type of assistance, please call our Administration Building at (716) 821-1903 and someone will be available to assist you in completing the online SchoolMint application. Plan on spending 15-20 minutes with us.

    The application is all that's required at this time. If your child is offered enrollment at a later date, you will be notified and supplied with a list of required documents at that time. It is preferable that you start gathering paperwork now, see the list below of required documents.
