TAKING OUR STUDENTS TO NEW HEIGHTS
GLA opened its doors in September 2017, with the purpose of re-envisioning the present-day Islamic school as a worthy contender against any of Canada's elite private schools. With a core focus on civic action, a solid understanding of Faith, and a unique blended approach to teaching, GLA aims to foster engaged and self-empowered students who achieve far beyond the classroom.
Funds raised will help GLA expand its educational programming for a full K-12 experience, build much needed state-of-the-art science labs, purchase additional Chromebooks for technologically enhanced learning, hire and retain first-rate educators, and secure a contemporary property to call our own.
