Gateway Christian Academy Photo #1
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.
