Whatever purpose has brought you to our school, we are here to support you in the process. If you have sought out a specialty school, you have likely experienced events that may make you and your student feel overwhelmed and confused. We would like to hear your story.
Parents that wish to continue can then submit an application. We will be happy to help you through the application process and answer any questions you may have. After the application is complete, prospective students are invited to shadow a current student and experience Gateway for themselves. During this process, it generally becomes clear to the student, the family, and the school whether Gateway will be the right fit.
Our mission at Gateway is to not only educate the whole student through our innovative approaches to learning, physical fitness, and social awareness but to also support the family. We look forward to meeting you and your family and supporting you as you pursue finding the best program for your student. Our hope is that you will choose to schedule a campus tour, and we may share our passion and programming for students with you.
We consider an individual student a “success” when they are able to move into a workplace or academic setting with confidence, operating within their community with a sense of direction and purpose. Our program aims to provide the education and experiences necessary to foster self-advocacy skills that will ultimately lead our graduates to a life of self-sufficiency. So to us, success isn’t simply about a high school diploma – success is about our graduates’ accessibility and initiative to leading a life filled with joy, relationships, and independence after leaving Gateway.
We are thrilled when our students reach graduation! Their progress and growth are so evident in the way they hold their diploma, walk with confidence, and share their story with those around them.
The Gateway Academy has at its core the pursuit of the highest standards possible. We believe our students should be responsible, resilient and compassionate. We also believe in high aspirations. Through our extended curriculum our mission is to develop active and thriving citizens and meet the needs to the student as a whole.
