Gateway Academy is a 5-8, continuous progress, project-based learning community. Rooted in community action and problem-solving, students engage in authentic collaboration and creative experiences in which they solve real problems. Gateway students are active agents of their own learning. They are passionate about the projects they undertake, using flexible learning spaces and innovative technology to enhance their learning experiences.
