We offer generous tuition assistance to our families; if you can afford to send your child to preschool, you’ll be able to send your child to Gateway too!


“We invest in our child’s education at Gateway because it provides a spectacular experience that will change our children’s lives.”  — David J., parent



“I work in public schools as a school psychologist. Our family loves Gateway, and our daughter loves attending school each day.” — Danielle M., parent



Our tuition allows the school to offer competitive salaries to attract and retain our talented faculty, support ongoing program improvement, and provide accessibility and affordability for families.

Tuition  2018-2019  (2019-2020 Tuition will be updated in February 2019)

Grades K-4: $21,975.00
Grades 5-8: $23,600.00

For the amount of time our kids spend in school, out of parental direct care and teaching, I really want my children to be in an environment that embraces and supports our family’s values, teaches compassion, emotional intelligence, respect for self and others, and citizenship. — Melissa G., parent

Financial Assistance

Our commitment to providing financial assistance is founded in our belief in building a diverse community of students and families in many areas.  Based upon the calculation of each family’s need, many of our families receive grants that make a Gateway education more affordable.

Financial assistance calculations are made by an independent organization, Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). All financial assistance applications and family data are completely confidential.  Admissions decisions are made separately from financial assistance decisions.
