Learn By Doing

As our preschool children enter their elementary years their confidence and abilities have blossomed. They are beginning to realize the academic gifts that the Lord has given them. Gateway Academy’s elementary program is structured to encourage this development in our young children’s intellect and character. Our classrooms are structured around the mastery of basic skills in key curriculum areas such as phonics, reading, language arts, and mathematics. Mosdos Press Literature, Accelerated Reader®, Shurley English, Bob Jones Social Studies, and Purposeful Design Math, Science, and Spelling round out our course material for our elementary students. The foundation built by the mastery of these basic skills then becomes the springboard for our elementary student’s creative problem solving and critical thinking. Resources such as physical education, art, Spanish, music, daily Bible instruction and weekly Chapel support our strong academic program.

Beyond the Books

Gateway Academy is built upon the cornerstone of a biblical perspective from which students learn to view the world and their role in it. We are honored to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children and in the pursuit of academic excellence to equip them to serve God now and in the future. Classrooms that feature leading technology, together with carefully selected curriculum, research-based instructional practices, and educational professionals called by God to Gateway are the backbone of Christian education at Gateway Academy.

What Parents are Saying

I am so thankful for the challenging yet developmentally appropriate academics that Gateway provides my daughter. The faith based philosophy and loving environment is unlike any other school I have seen. I believe Gateway is setting my daughter up for the best future.

– Jess Foy

I appreciate all that the staff at Gateway Academy have done to welcome my daughters and make them feel at home. They have made comments about how friendly the other students are at Gateway from the very first day they attended. The teachers were all wonderful about getting them adjusted and caught up in their classes. The students at Gateway were very warm and welcoming to the “new kids.”

– Kevin Wells

Gateway means a tremendous amount to my tiny family of three. It means I can drop my boys at school, and head off to work, knowing they are loved big, safe, and surrounded by edifying people who honestly live to grow them closer to God.

– Leah Petrey
