What Parents are Saying


Before my son started the PreK3 program at Gateway he often hid behind others and struggled to hold a crayon. However, within weeks at Gateway he started to write his name and his confidence was not only nurtured but began to soar. Years later, this school and these teachers have given my son the strongest foundational base through advanced education, biblical knowledge and acceptance.

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’sChrist centered education is building a foundation for our children that we believe is vital in this day and age.  The curriculum and structure are proving to accelerate and challenge our girls to learn and grow.
