Attention Current GOC Families!!

Registration for new families will be open from February 1-28 on a first-come, first-served basis. For planning purposes, all existing full-time GOC students will be automatically re-enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Current families are encouraged to register new students early in February to ensure space.  Current families with students who will be new  to GOC will need to register their child during the open enrollment period beginning February 1. 

If you know your student will not return to GOC next year, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can open the spot to a new family during full-time registration. Those students who will not return next year will need to come on campus to withdraw after final exams in May 2019.

Please contact the front office if you have any questions or concerns.
