A Met Cares School, inspired by, rooted in and measured through the Greenwood spirit of Excellence.
Enrollment for PreK through 5th Grade for the 2020-21 school year is open now!
NOTE: GLA is participating in the “Enroll Tulsa” system through Tulsa Public Schools.
Greenwood Leadership Academy has spoken with staff, families, community members as well as school officials and leaders across the country. We believe that it is in the best interest of our scholars to return to school in the safest way possible. As a result, we will begin in-person learning options beginning in Quarter 2 (November 9 – January 15). Our phased approach to returning will be as follows:
November 9: PK and 5th Grade
November 16: K and 3rd Grade
November 30: Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 4
We are asking families to commit to virtual learning or in-person learning by Friday, October 30 in order for us to adequately prepare for scholars. Your commitment will be for the duration of Quarter 2. Please click the button below to make your Quarter 2 selection. One survey must be completed for each scholar.
