Message from Director of Admissions and Enrollment
On behalf of the entire Geffen Academy at UCLA community, welcome, and thank you for considering our school.
We hope you are here because you have heard the good news about this incredible and bold venture we are embarking on. As the Director of Admissions and Enrollment, I am thrilled to be a part of the start-up of a phenomenal educational endeavor that celebrates difference and diversity, and values learning, the willingness to challenge oneself, initiative and accomplishment. While there are many secondary school options in Los Angeles, we believe that Geffen Academy offers an option to families interested in something different. We hope you agree when you have learned more about us.
We’ve structured our admissions process to be student-driven and student-friendly, giving thorough consideration to the child’s strengths, interests and their participation with the Geffen Academy community. It is important for us to have students who are deeply engaged in a process of self-discovery, to consider their unique learning style, and learn what would make them happy and able to thrive in our environment. Going through our admissions process, we hope students will continue to refine their voice, and regardless of the decision, feel valued, empowered, and confident in their burgeoning self-advocacy.
We would like to extend to you an open invitation to learn more about our program. Visit us at an Information Session or Open House, and ask questions of our admissions staff, faculty and Head of School, Dr. Sibyll Carnochan Catalan.
We look forward to supporting you on your journey and can’t wait to meet you!
