About Gateway Academy

At Gateway Academy, we offer a unique homeschool experience. We combine classroom instruction and homeschooling. This blended model allows parents to choose a program that best meets the needs of their child. The Gateway staff is committed to incorporating a rich diversity of curriculum and enrichment. We help families to connect with other homeschoolers to create a strong support system. Students have the opportunity to participate in class pictures, library visits, group computer activities, field trips, and many opportunities to develop their social skills with their peers.
