message from our head of school

Christopher P. DeSanctis

The opportunity to serve as Head of School at Gateway Academy (GA) has and continues to be a remarkable experience for me.   

As someone who attended private schools starting in second grade, and continuing through graduate school, I can attest to the the great impact schools like GA have in the lives of young people. My worldview, interests, and character were greatly impacted during these important years. 

Christian schools have existed longer than all other forms of education in the Western world except for Jewish education. This history causes me to reflect on our responsibility today to continue offering families a school marked by excellent academics, character building and faith integration. Impacting both the "head" and "heart" of students makes GA an exceptional place.

Gateway Academy, founded in 1994 by Gateway Church, partners with parents to provide an education that recognizes each student is created with unique gifts and has the potential to succeed in using those gifts throughout life.  

Thank you for reading this letter and please set up your tour of GA so we can talk personally. 

Together We Serve,

Christopher P. DeSanctis
