Welcome to Gateway Christian Academy!

We're so glad you've visited our page. GCA is a private Christian school offering grades K3  through 6th grade. Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered education in order to  prepare our students academically and spiritually for life. What does that mean?

Good question. It means Gateway emphasizes solid academics and an orderly, disciplined environment. And, of course, we teach from a distinctively Christian perspective. That is, we encourage students to follow the Bible, God's Word, as their reference point for moral values and character development. Our philosophy is that although the curriculum is important, the teacher makes the difference. To that end we look for caring, Godly, and competent teachers. Our teachers daily demonstrate that their teaching is not just a job, it's a calling. We're especially thankful for our caring staff. GCA has a wonderful atmosphere where teachers and students are respected. We love to have fun and believe students should look forward to coming to school. 

If you'd like to learn more about our school, you ought to visit us. Just call our school at 228-762-4144 and we will be happy to set up a tour for you to see GCA for yourself. We admit it - GCA is not for everyone.
