Hello Prospective Parents and Students!

We know finding the right school for your daughter can be stressful and your year will be filled with school tours, applications, and crossing your fingers.  At our school tours, we hope to give you the information that will help you decide if GALA is the right fit for your family. At GALA, our mission is to build confident, powerful, trailblazing women who have the potential to solve the world's problems... or at least make the world a better place!

NEW GALA LOCATION

We are elated to announce that the LAUSD Superintendent announced May of 2023 that GALA would be moving to its own campus for the 2024-2025 school year. As an all-girls model, we believe our mission and vision will be fully realized on our own all-girls campus. Our new location is nestled and surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Mount. Saint Mary's Doheny Campus (the only all-girls college in Los Angeles), the area's historic Victorian mansions, and conveniently located within walking distance from the Expo train line. We have already partnered with Mount Saint Mary's and USC on multiple projects and we can't wait to continue those relationships. The location is just 4.5 miles from GALA at 2328 St. James Place. GALA is not displacing any other students. The location used to be a high school, closed, and then became a district employee office site. In September 2023, the School Board also approved a 2-Phase campus improvement project that includes painting, upgrading, and adding bungalows.

For the first time, LAUSD will be providing transportation to GALA via school buses from select areas, including a bus from our current location at LA High School. We hope you are as excited as we are that we finally have a campus to call our own!

“GALA has given me a community I don’t think I would have found at any other school. The school has allowed me to grow without the fear of being judged and has helped grow my confidence exponentially. My favorite thing about going to an all-girls STEM school is seeing girls in positions of leadership.”

- Class of 2020 Salutatorian and Wellesley College Student
