GILA is a statewide boarding school for students that are seeking yet another choice, and is Alaska's longest operating residential secondary vocational school.

It is an accredited school for grades 9 through 12 and post secondary adult vocational programs. GILA offers students from all over the state the opportunity to gain industry standard vocational certification in aviation, automotive technology, cosmetology, health sciences and culinary arts programs while achieving the academic skills necessary to pass the Alaska High School Graduation Qualifying Exam.

Vocational and technical teachers are hired from industry for upper level career pathways, validating GILA's program as meeting the standards required by industry.
