The Gateway Learning Center

The Learning Center reflects Gateway’s appreciation for the fact that students learn differently and the school’s commitment to helping a diverse body of students realize their full academic potential. Often described as the academic engine of the school, the Learning Center is available to all students who need additional support. In addition to providing academic support, classes, and case management for students with diagnosed learning issues, the Learning Center provides after school tutoring, classroom accommodations, and consultation for any student experiencing academic difficulty and provides ongoing support to Gateway parents and faculty.
