national teacher appreciation day meet up

During covid-19

Statement from CEO, Christopher DeSanctis: 

“Our Gateway Academy faculty were missing their students and families so much (and vice versa!) it seemed important to use this year's National Teacher Appreciation Day for a meet up. The opportunity to see each other was the perfect way to honor our Academy faculty on this special day. “

“The present state of affairs in NYC has been a heavy burden on many in our school community. Therefore, we wanted to remind our students, parents and faculty that they are loved and valued. This was a day to provide encouragement for all who attended and a reminder of Gateway Academy’s strong community -- even during a pandemic!”

The BBC visits GA!

Producers from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) interviewed our students for a program called Newsround. The episodes highlighted the inauguration of our 45th President. GA students addressed important public policy issues the new administration will deal with during the next four years. GA students did great -- our future leaders!

Annual 5k "on the move" walk-a-thon

Every year Gateway Academy students, parents, and friends join together to raise important funds to help support our tuition assistance program, technology enhancements, athletics, and so much more.

We greatly appreciate the philanthropic spirit at Gateway Academy.
