The Gateway Academy Advantage

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

Each student follows a unique and personalized curriculum based upon their specific needs, strengths, talents, and interests. Gateway Academy offers all academic subjects in all grades. 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 because one-on-one is simply the best way to learn.


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 parents, and others as necessary, in the information loop on a frequent and regular basis regarding their student’s progress.
