Gateway Christian Junior High & High School offers a college Prep curriculum that gives students the education they need to compete on a national level. Our students test above grade level on every core subject.
We provide this in a well-disciplined environment with qualified, dedicated instructors. We have an excellent athletics program as well as fine arts. The entire program is founded on Biblical priniples and taught in a Christ centered atmosphere. We keep class size to a 20:1 student teacher ratio to provide opportunities for genuine one on-one learning.
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." 3 John 4
The mission of Gateway Christian School is for each student to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to grow in Christian maturity. Our desire is to help meet the spiritual, academic, physical and social needs of all students and to lead each student to respect and submit to authority, thus enabling them to become the leaders of tomorrow and bring glory to God.
In order to accomplish this in an educational institution, we must recognize God as the ultimate source and final authority of all teaching. We must provide a Christian education for the children of Roswell without regard to race or religious creed.
Our aim is to provide an education:
That is in agreement with the Bible and stresses its practicality for every part of daily life
That possesses high academic standards in a traditional classroom setting, and instills in the student a personal responsibility to be all God wants him/her to be
That will promote a love for God and this nation and prepare the student to live productively in the American society and the hereafter
That assists the family in carrying out their “God given responsibility” to train their child
To teach and train students in a well-disciplined environment
where students can grow spiritually as well as academically
A Christ-centered school that emphasizes character-building
qualities and follows Biblical principles
A place of excellence that honors God and helps students
see the world through His eyes
