Enrollment & Admissions

Global Schools for Starseed and Urantian Children and Teens (GSSU) is a private school. All schooling is a collaborative effort of the administrative staff, teachers, and parents. It is an alternative to traditional schooling and strives to exceed the benefits therein. Our campus is a combination of progressive EcoVillage, organic gardens, and alternative building sites. The intention of our school is to educate students in a much broader and more expansive manner than the standard school; to really benefit the person as a whole with a much richer and fulfilling educational experience that will always be treasured and valued when remembered. Due to the unique circumstances of our campus and our mission as a school, the admissions process will vary for students depending upon the needs and intentions of the student and their family.
