Welcome to Gateway School
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Gateway School. We hope you will come for a visit. We are still accepting admissions applications for the 2019-20 school year for some grades.
Our website will give you an overview of our remarkable school, but the best way to learn about our innovative and progressive approach to education is to visit our campus. We provide many opportunities to visit and experience Gateway, and we encourage families to take advantage of as many of these as desired. The ways to visit range from monthly School Day Tours of our classrooms in action, weekend and evening visit days and open houses at which you can meet and interact with our faculty, privately scheduled tours, and attendance at our school events and celebrations that are open to the public.
Finding the right school for your child and your family is an exciting and challenging endeavor. Contact us anytime if you have questions about our admissions process.
Flexible Tuition Puts A Great Education Within Your Reach
At Gateway we continue to strive to make our educational experience accessible to all. This is why we are excited that for 2020-21, Gateway School will be implementing Flexible Tuition in place of an outdated “financial aid” model.
The purpose of our Flexible Tuition model is to help fulfill the Gateway School mission by increasing economic diversity in the school community. We believe that our school mission, vision and goal explicitly call for engaging in action that promotes equity and justice; that diversity provides a powerful basis for exploring multiple perspectives throughout our curriculum; and that a full cohort of students adds depth and value to the experience of all students and families in myriad ways.
Flexible Tuition Process
Flexible Tuition calculations are made by an independent organization, FAST (Financial Assistance for School Tuition). All Flexible Tuition applications and family data are completely confidential.
Flexible Tuition is based on the principle that a family’s financial commitment should be in equitable proportion to its financial resources. The same financial information is asked of all parents who wish to participate in the program. FAST (Financial Assistance for School Tuition) is used to determine each family’s contracted tuition for the coming school year.
Tuition determinations are made by a family’s entire financial profile, not solely income, and are assessed by the Gateway School Flexible Tuition Committee. All Flexible Tuition information and family data are completely confidential.
Admissions decisions are made separately from Flexible Tuition determinations.
Key Deadlines for the 2020-21 school year
