GALA’s mission is to provide a rigorous, college-preparatory STEM-focused education in an all-girls environment - fostering academic excellence, leadership, and intellectual curiosity. This kind of education is crucial given that women and minorities are underrepresented in STEM-related fields.

    Sparking Girls' Creativity in STEM Education

    Through a highly rigorous college preparatory curriculum, the Girls Academic Leadership Academy (GALA), the first all-girls public school in LAUSD and the State of California, provides girls with a clear pathway to college in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). GALA seeks to build the arts component of its STEM curriculum to nurture the creative side of its STEM scholars and ultimately create a pipeline of technologically savvy girls entering entertainment and creative arts fields in Southern California.
