Gateway Academy is an owner operated residential program dedicated to the healthy development, education and healing of adolescent boys.
We provide a safe and nurturing environment through five integrated programs: 1) therapy that is individualized, 2) education that is personal, 3) community that is empowering, 4) outdoor adventures that are therapeutic, and 5) fitness that is focused to prime the brain. The Gateway difference comes from the purpose and intent infused in every aspect of our programs.
Gateway Academy serves boys ages 14 to 17 struggling with depression, anxiety, impulsivity and attention problems, social problems, diminished self-esteem, oppositional problems, substance abuse difficulties at home, relationship problems, nonverbal learning problems, difficulties in executive functioning and academic deficits, identity and developmental issues and other comparable difficulties. Young men with these issues are mentored in personal, social and intellectual development.
Grounded in our relationship and brain based approach, each young man receives an individualized balance of intense therapy, demanding accredited schooling, outdoor experiential learning; and comprehensive fitness programming. Gateway?s small, home-like environment provides the nurturing boys need to thrive and the safety to practice positive relationships. Through staff mentoring, peer interactions, group activities, and volunteer service, boys learn self-advocacy, life skills, and self-confidence.
