Gateway College and Career Academy is an early college public high school dedicated to helping students think beyond earning a high school diploma.
Students spend a significant amount of time learning about their strengths, interests, and current industry sector options to develop a plan to accomplish their goals. The faculty and staff assist students to develop academically, while providing information and resources regarding college and career opportunities.
Gateway College and Career Academy (formerly Gateway to College) is an early college public high school launched in 2004, as an answer to the growing number of students who were disconnected from their education and not on track to obtain their high school diplomas. The school not only supported them in meeting their high school goals but also gave them direct access to, and an understanding of, the benefits of obtaining a higher education.
GCCA serves students from a variety of backgrounds and works to address their diverse needs. Our highly qualified teaching and counseling staff meets and supports those needs while guiding our students on their educational pathways and, in turn, establishing a bond of trust that keeps them motivated to make it to the finish line.
We believe that all students, no matter what barriers they may have faced in the past, are capable of being successful college students.
Our mission is to provide learners, who are not on track to graduate, with the opportunity to complete high school and achieve success within a supportive college community.
