Curriculum

 

At Gateway Academy, we address the developmental needs of your child through an educational strategy that encompasses Academics, Social and Fitness perspectives.

Academics

Gateway provides a curriculum that follows the Texas recommendations for high school graduation. Our students excel in a traditional curriculum provided in a non-traditional manner. Teachers meet each student at their current academic level and enable them to advance at their own maximum pace. We use and adapt state approved textbooks and traditional grade level projects to give the students a challenging, comprehensive experience.

We encourage the student to develop strong skills in communication, time management, and organizing schedules and tasks. Many of these skills are supported with a technology-based curriculum. Our goal is to give the students a curriculum that matches their learning needs while encouraging their growth towards the next level of education.

Social

Gateway Students practice language, pragmatics, critical thinking and social skills on a daily basis. Our teachers are highly skilled educators who have knowledge of the issues our students face.

Gateway students learn and practice applying language and social skills in real life situations. We are focused on providing intervention and guidance in and out of the classroom. We have a full time Licensed Family Counselor and a Speech/ Language Pathologist giving this guidance and support daily. Additionally, our students develop these skills during twice monthly trips to community service locations. This activity serves the purpose of showing each learner how they can be of service while developing teamwork, accountability, and self esteem.

Fitness

Research indicates that exercise serves to build stamina, increase attentiveness, develop coordination skills, and suppress anxiety. We teach our students to develop daily lifestyle patterns that will support their future learning and growth. Each morning our entire community begins with “Fit Club”. We participate in team sports, running, weight lifting, balance and aerobic activities to develop patterns of fitness that will carry into adulthood.
