Welcome to Gateway Academy – one of the most forward-thinking schools in Houston designed specifically for adolescents with learning and social differences.

Gateway Academy is a private school where students gain new levels of competence, confidence, and personal significance within a caring, and supportive academic environment. Gateway provides a highly structured, personalized program taking into account individual learning styles. We allow students to gain both self-advocacy and social awareness skills necessary for future success in college, career, and community. Our blend of academic excellence, emphasis on physical fitness, a collaborative counseling approach, and focus on lifelong work skills make our Middle and High School programs truly unique to the Houston area.

Our Mission

Gateway Academy serves 6th-12th-grade students with social and academic challenges through innovative approaches to learning, physical fitness, and social awareness. Our graduates encounter a changing world with self-advocacy, opening a path to personal significance in college, career, and community.

We want our families to feel confident that they have found a place where they belong. From our inception, our highest priority has been the creation of a community in which every student feels safe, connected, understood, and supported. Our environment improves attitudes about school and enhances academic success. The Gateway experience is transformational. Our joy is seeing students begin to mature and become more confident and excited about their personal potential and future prospects.
