Gateway Christian Academy

  • Gateway Christian Academy was founded in 1999 by several individuals and families from different churches in the community.
  • Seeking God’s direction and provisions, through researching and planning with other founding leaders of Christian schools across the nation, groundwork was laid for the establishment of a Christ-centered school, accredited by the Mississippi Private School Association.
  • The school opened with a class of Kindergarten and First Grade students.
  • By the grace of God, our mission is being fulfilled so that children and like-minded families will experience the benefits offered by the classical and biblically-based method of education.
  • Gateway Christian Academy continues to grow by the work of faithful men and women and the cooperation of committed families.
