Is traditional school no longer working for your family due to COVID-19?

The recent spikes in COVID-19 cases have caused a lot of uncertainty and anxiety for families. Do you worry about whether your child will be safe when they return to school in-person, or how they’re responding to remote learning, given the number of students who need to be accommodated at the same time? There’s no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to education.  If your family is struggling to find a solution, Gateway Academy may be an option. This year may be more challenging than normal, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a great experience for your child.

The Gateway Academy Advantage

Gateway Academy is an accredited private school in association with the Learning Lab that provides each student with a learning environment specifically geared to meet their individual needs: most classrooms here are classrooms of one student and in some cases small groups of up to five students.

In our customized model, each student follows a unique and personalized curriculum based upon their specific needs, strengths, talents, and interests. Whether students want to catch up, get ahead, or simply take a break from the traditional school setting, Gateway Academy is where they can help direct their own education, all while meeting required state standards and guidelines.

The Gateway Model


An accredited school that accommodates students in grades K through 12 who may have unique needs or schedule restrictions: students with learning differences, those who are intimidated by a large group learning environment, aspiring athletes or performers who have special practice or travel schedules, or those who need or want an individualized, private education for any reason.


A learning environment in which there is one teacher for every student.


A school where all students follow their personalized curriculum, work at their own pace and on their own schedule — and no student is left behind or held back from reaching his or her full potential, whether they are here for remedial or advanced learning.


An educational model that keeps families, and others as necessary, in the information loop on a frequent and regular basis regarding their student’s progress.

The Gateway Benefit

Imagine how much more your child could learn in a classroom of one, where their teacher is solely focused on their success. No crowded classrooms. No distractions from other students. No pressure to try and keep pace with peers. In the Gateway learning environment, students often learn faster and learn better than they would in a traditional classroom. That is why Gateway Academy has become Middle Tennessee’s leading one-on-one educational environment.

What is success at Gateway?

Success at Gateway is measured by grades, as well as by subject mastery and student satisfaction with the overall learning experience, all of which are emphasized in the personalized learning environment. This approach also ensures that each student moves ahead only after mastering the material at hand – and all at their own pace.

Learning is a lifetime pursuit, and mastering the art of learning serves Gateway students long after their formal education is behind them.

We offer full educational support for your student.
