The Learning Continues…

Our Community, Our Commitment
Gateway’s mission is to inspire children to lead lives of purpose and compassion through scholarship and citizenship. This mission and our values underlie our commitment to provide a robust educational experience whether on campus, in distance learning, or through a combination of the two. Gateway is more than a building; we are a community of scholars, families, and educators who love learning, work hard, and act courageously. With this in mind, we have developed the following scenarios for our 2020-2021 school year.

Discover Gateway School

Gateway School, founded in 1970, is a co-ed, Kindergarten through Middle School day school in Santa Cruz, CA. We are dedicated to nurturing academic excellence, intellectual curiosity, personal character and active engagement. We value collaboration, creativity and a love of learning, and encourage our students to become compassionate and responsible citizens. We invite all families to visit our website or schedule a tour, and get to know our community!
