GATEWAY LEGACY ACADEMY Several years ago, Gateway experienced the same frustrations that schools across the United States encounter everyday. Students are not engaging due to a number of reasons; teacher personality conflicts, different learning levels, classroom disruptions from other students and various other reasons. This leads to students not connecting and failing to love the learning process in our education system.

Melissa Morrison Co-Founder

We know teachers and administrators work tirelessly to meet the needs of all students. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to utilize tools and resources to leverage technology in ways that improve student outcomes.

firsthand that all districts, schools, and students have unique needs that We’ve seen can’t be met with a one-size-fits-all solution. With that in mind, we dedicated our efforts to creating powerful, but flexible products and solutions that give students the personalization and engagement they need to succeed. With our transition to a new campus, we are taking everything to the next level. As we moved into a University campus, our students will enjoy a historic campus, top level athletic fields and access to top training in athletics and business. There will be recreational areas, recording studios, training centers, many classrooms for learning and too many amenities to list at once. This is the vision that was initiated as the school was launched with humble beginnings. We invite you to take a moment and read over the next few pages and learn how your child’s world of education will expand at Gateway Legacy Christian Academy.

"The Vision  of  Gateway  Legacy  Chris0an  Academy  is  to  be  the  na0on's  BEST  resource  for  people  development   in  3  key  areas:  Sports,  Business,  Medical."     IMAGINE…   A  classroom  where  a  student  and  teacher  form  a  posi0ve  rela0onship  before  learning  begins.   Gateway  Legacy  Chris0an  Academy  is  a  private  preparatory  academy  that  unlocks  social,  emo0onal,  and   academic  growth  in  every  kid.   See  how  we’ve  changed  the  lives  of  students  and  their  families  through  our  personalized  approach.     To  Encounter  God's  Presence   “You  make  known  to  me  the  path  of  life.  In  Your  presence  is  fullness  of  joy;  at  Your  right  hand  are  pleasures   forevermore.”  -­‐  Psalm  16:11  

Delivering  Hope  and  Vision   "For  I  know  the  plans  I  have  for  you,”  declares  the  LORD,  “plans  to  prosper  you  and  not  to  harm  you,  plans  to  give  you   hope  and  a  future."  -­‐Jeremiah  29:11  

Inspiring  Excellence  and  True  Performance   “Study  to  shew  thyself  approved  unto  God,  a  workman  that  needeth  not  to  be  ashamed,  rightly  dividing  the  word  of   truth.”  Ma_hew  22:37  “Jesus  said  unto  him,  Thou  shalt  love  the  Lord  thy  God  with  all  thy  heart,  and  with  all  thy  soul,   and  with  all  thy  mind.”  Proverbs  9:9  “Give  instruc0on  to  a  wise  man,  and  he  will  be  s0ll  wiser;  teach  a  righteous  man,   and  he  will  increase  in  learning.”  -­‐  Timothy  2:15

Elementary school marks a life-changing experience for children across this nation every Fall.  The first day of kindergarten, and every year that follows, your child walks into a new world — a world that can excite growing minds, a world that can intimidate, and a world that fundamentally forms a child’s impression of learning and education.  At Gateway Legacy Christian Academy, we want to partner with your family on this adventure of education.  We believe that the school is an extension on the family unit.  Children need love, care, and guidance to help make these years form a foundation for success in their future.  We emphasize that teachers and staff should exemplify love and care in every situation.  To see children truly thrive, school needs to be more than academics. In addition, we must pay attention to variety, innovation, fun, social and emotional needs, and strong parental and community involvement.   By partnering together, we will help guide our children to be the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Gateway Legacy Christian Academy offers a personalized approach to learning.  We have traditional classes that meet the needs of every student.  Once a student enrolls, they are all given a personalized academic plan that focuses on their strengths and acknowledges their weaknesses.  This plan guides each student’s progress and helps in achieving great success for the entire year!   THEMES Each month we have a unique theme that ties into our learning!  These themes are centered around behaviors and qualities that will have students reaching for the stars!   September: Who am I? October: FALL into learning November: 30 Days of THANKFULNESS December: You are the GIFT   January: Express it! February: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ♥ March: It’s a ZOO April: Earth May: Blast Off! In  addi0on  to  our  core  classes,  we  invite  fun  and  invigora0ng  extra-­‐curriculars  to   enhance  our  student’s  school  life.    Just  as  we  are  passionate  about  educa0on,  we  are   passionate  about  families  and  we  want  to  give  precious  family  0me  back  to  your   family!    Therefore,  we  offer  an  array  of  classes  and  sports  that  take  place  during  the   school  day!    This  incredible  feature  gives  students  enrichment  beyond  the  classroom   and  saves  families  0me  and  money.      


MICRO ELECTIVES These are a cornerstone of our elementary and middle school program!  These electives are a hands-on explosion of FUN!  Electives last two to four weeks of the school year and immerse students into the world of creativity all while learning to explore new worlds of learning.  Each of these electives will be presented to our students with FUN class names that will have your child forgetting that this is actual learning!    •  Animation •  Film Production •  Music Production •  Audio Production •  Video Game Development •  Cooking •  Home Economics •  Sign Language •  Journalism •  Student Council •  Horticulture •  Zoology •  3-D Art •  Painting •  Robotics •  Wood working 


Emotional Skills Class is a part of everyday learning! Self-awareness, impulse control, empathy, teamwork, and responsible decision-making are just some of the social and emotional skills that help students succeed in and out of school. Unfortunately, many students are not currently developing these skills on a regular basis.   At Gateway, we use a lifechanging curriculum called Habitudes!    The Habitudes for Social and Emotional Learning curriculum uses memorable imagery, real-life stories, and practical experiences to teach timeless skills in a way that is relevant to students today. Students are constantly using images to communicate via emojis, Instagram, and Snapchat. Why not utilize their favorite language to bridge the gap between learning and real-life application as part of your social emotional learning program?   Habitudes helps students:   Develop habits of self-discipline and initiative Implement time management skills to do what really counts Plan for personal growth outside the classroom Identify their unique strengths and passions for a healthy self-image Many more social and emotional skills
