About Us

Great Lakes Academy (GLA) is a Level 1+ charter school in Chicago that opened in 2014. For the 2018-2019 academic year we are serving students in grades K-5 and will continue to add a grade level annually to reach K-8.

Our character education is based upon our BE GREAT core values of Bravery, Endurance, Growth, Responsibility, Enthusiasm, Achievement, and Team. The GLA Core Values drive not only the way in which our students approach their academics and respect for one another, they influence the DNA of our entire school, including our staff. Students who succeed develop more than just academic mastery—they possess exceptional strength of character.
