- 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.
