gateway2At our military-like boarding school for struggling teenage boys 11-17, discipline and structure pave the way for transformation and empowerment, instilling responsibility, leadership, and respect within a rigorous, supportive environment. Here, challenges become growth opportunities as each young man learns to navigate his journey with resilience and integrity, forging a path toward personal success and honor. Our sports program will challenge teens and build teamwork and life discipline values. Gateway Academy is an excellent opportunity to impact your teen for a lifetime based on the time-tested Teen Challenge approach, which has helped teens and families for over a half-century.

The former military academy still holds onto its military-type decorum, but no meaningless drills or drill sergeants. It is an accredited school, working ranch and farm, counseling and mentoring, competitive team sports, spiritual emphasis and our hands-on outreach to the community and missions trips to third world countries all combine to make young men all they can be, and more.

Gateway Academy is made up of caring, concerned staff, many who have been in your situation with their own children. Their purpose in life is to help self-destructing teenage boys make a turnaround and begin looking at life differently. Boys are given a new purpose, a new drive, and a new passion to be a better person and to serve others.

If you could see the before and after pictures of boys who have come through Gateway’s program, you would see a striking change to confident, happy young men. You would see selfish boys with a chip on their shoulders that are now ready to give the shirt off their back to someone in need. You would see boys without purpose who now have solid goals and direction for their life.

Gateway is not new at this. They know what works, and we see lives changed every day. They’re not making robots out of these kids, but building up young men with confidence, who thoughtfully consider their options, having learned that making bad choices leads to bad outcomes. Developing leaders of integrity and men of strength from foolish boys who were weak and headed for disaster is what Gateway does.

Seldom is there an opportunity for a young man to lead five, ten, twenty or more peers while in high school. Young men at Gateway can reach positions of responsibility and learn leadership skills, which often transfer to college and the world beyond.

Engaging academics in a structured environment is often easier for most, and it helps young men see a brighter future in terms of applying to college. Challenging a young man while his thoughts are big and his future is open is a wonderful part of what Gateway does.

Activities

Participation in athletic activities is strongly encouraged at Gateway. They teach teamwork and camaraderie. These are invaluable interpersonal skills for a world absorbed by computers and gadgets. Knowing how to work with others is a critical skill taught by our school.
