GIRLS ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP ACADEMY (GALA)September 28, 2019 | 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
GALA is the first public all-girls school in Los Angeles. Through a highly rigorous college preparatory curriculum, GALA provides girls in grades 6 through 12 with a clear pathway to college in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The school opened in August 2016 and will have its first graduating class at the end of this school year. Like Laurel, GALA is a member of the National Coalition of Girls Schools, providing advocacy, networking and professional development among girls’ schools.
Over lunch and breakout groups with the junior and senior class, Laurel alumnae will serve as mentors to the next generation of female leaders, sharing their experiences transitioning from an all-girls school to finding their career path. Please be prepared to talk about your education and career path. The students want to hear about dreams, passions, barriers, successes and advice about life journeys.
