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 that schools like GA have in the lives of children. My worldview, interests, and character were greatly impacted during these 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 ponder our great responsibility today to continue offering families a school marked by excellence in academics, character building and faith integration. As the English writer, Samuel Johnson, once stated: "Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful." Our goal is to build up the intellect and character of our students.
Gateway Academy was founded in 1994 by Gateway Church, and since then has kept its mission and vision clear to partner with parents to provide children with an education rooted in Christian perspective.
At GA we believe every student is created with unique gifts, and each one has the potential to find great success after graduating and in a future career.
Thank you for visiting our web site and please set up your tour of Gateway Academy so we can talk personally.
Together We Serve,
Christopher P. DeSanctis
