School Notes

  • GATE Academy is an inquiry-based school for deep, reflective thinkers-children who have a passion for knowing and understanding. Our students delight in exercising logic, spotting contradictions a mile away, and taking fantastic leaps of imagination that are as deep a need to them as sleeping and breathing. Because our students have been taught to take ownership over their education-from formatting questions and conducting research, to analyzing data and content, to being completely dialed into discussions and presentations-GATE is a school where students are wholly engaged. We are located on the beautiful St. Vincent campus in San Rafael.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
