Financial Assistance at GCS

We know that Christian education for your children is an investment into your child’s future that requires big commitment and sacrifice. We are committed to providing capable students access to Gateway Christian School, regardless of financial means, so that families with the desire to send their children through Gateway’s rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum with a Biblical worldview have the opportunity.

If you think you might be in need of financial assistance, here are a few options to consider:

Educate New Mexico Scholarships:

Educate New Mexico is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation dedicated to helping New Mexico families exercise their right to quality education by promoting parental choice and providing financial assistance.

The scholarship (if awarded), is up to $1,000.00 a year for Kindergarten - 6th grade and up to $1500 for grades 7 - 12. This scholarship is done lottery style, so applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
