We Know How to Make LearningĀ Fun For Kids

In addition to educational certification, we ensure that our teachers are called and equipped by God with hearts for instructing our students. This is important as the character of our teachers will be mirrored by their students. For this reason, Gateway Academy completes a stringent faculty selection process to build a faculty that reflects the character of Christ and meets our Standards of Christian & Professional Conduct.

Testimonials

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.
