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 Christian schools from elementary on through higher education, 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.

The true purpose of school is weightier than a framed piece of paper we call a diploma. It’s about preparing students for the world they will soon participate in. GA students are inspired to grow through academic excellence, 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 visiting our website and please set up your tour of GA so we can talk personally. Call 718-966-8695 ext. 140.

Together We Serve,

Christopher P. DeSanctis
