Q1 What is the application process? It says there are limited spots available, will I be accepted?

We accept a limited number of students each month to ensure our school is able to provide the best experience possible to each and every student. We would love to have every child at GSA, but due to limited space we prioritize the following students:

  • Family members of enrolled GSA students
  • Referrals from current or former GSA students
  • International preschool students or graduates
  • Overseas returnees
  • Continuing English learners

If the monthly enrollment limit is reached, you will be placed on our waiting list and notified when there is an opening.

Q2 Can I take any program or class I want?

GSA programs are available for students of all English levels. Our Foundational English Program is built for all levels of learners. Each student’s English abilities will be checked in the initial lessons to place the student appropriately within the program. Student achievement and progress is continually monitored by our teachers and academic team so adjustments can be made when necessary. The Foundational English Program is available only as 1-on-1 lessons and is paid as a monthly installment based on the number of lessons taken per week. Our GSA Explorer Programs are designed to develop deeper understanding and practical use of the language in a variety of subjects to interest almost any student. The English requirements for these programs vary, but most offer courses appropriate for beginners to advanced students. GSA Explorer Programs are offered as 1-on-1 or group lessons, depending on the course. Our Student Relations team can advise and help customize your learning plan after your application has been submitted.

Q3 What courses can I take in the 2 week free trial?

The two week free trial is mainly for students taking our Foundational English Program 1-on-1 lessons. You can choose between 2 or 3 classes per week during the trial period. Some GSA Explorer Programs can be taken as well if they are 1-on-1 lessons. You can indicate your interest in taking these during the application process or request them from our Student Relations team.

Q4 Is there a special offer for siblings, family and friends?

We offer 10% off monthly price plans for students and their siblings while they are enrolled at GSA. Each enrolled student also has a personal referral code that they can share with family and friends who wish to apply at GSA. Both GSA students and the person they refer can receive discounts and other benefits. Details about our student referral program can be found here.

Q5 What are the technical requirements to take classes at GSA?

To get the best quality lessons, we highly recommend Apple and Windows computers and/or tablets to be used, along with the latest version of Zoom. Using mobile phones to take lessons is not recommended. For further details about system requirements, go to our System Requirements page here.
