Gateway Christian Academy
Gateway Christian Academy
Having a vision of instilling Godly principles to our children, Pastor and Sis Banfield made their vision a reality by opening the first school of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies (P. A.W. I.). On September 6th, 2003 Gateway Christian Academy (G.C.A) was commissioned and began its operation from the basement of the Church Building with Mrs. Antonia Stanisclaus as the Principal.
At its inception, the school had seven (7) students, and one (1) helper. The school is a ministry of the Gateway Assembly INC, and is efficiently governed by a School Board; who are ultimately the primer decision making body. Teachers and monitors all give aid to the children in their everyday activities.
Gateway Christian Academy is committed to working with parents to provide students with an academically sound Christ-centered education.
Scripture: “Now these are the commandments, the statues, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land whither you go to possess it…and you shall teach them diligently to your children” (Deuteronomy 6:1)
The Curriculum and Staff
A BEKA Curriculum
Gateway Christian Academy’s comprehensive curriculum uses the A BEKA teaching program. This traditional approach to learning is based on biblical principles that addresses the nature of the learner and learning itself. It also teaches the nature of truth and authority, and what is truly important to learn and remember. With A BEKA, students first master one basic skill at a time before moving onto another. This builds a strong foundation for moving ahead in each subject area.
For more information on the Abeka Curriculum; please visit their website at www.abeka.com.
What Does Gateway Christian Academy Offer?
A world of fun and excitement awaits your child as they venture into the world of shapes, colours, letters and sound with Amber Lamb and Button Bear. The school offers a wonderful program, from pre-school to grade 1, which allows your child to have fun while learning. We Guarantee:
• Reliable, committed and caring Christian teachers
• Christian Curriculum
• Small class sizes
• 1 on 1 interaction that benefits various learning types
• Strong focus on character development
• Supervised, safe and nurturing learning environment for students.
• Affordable tuition rates.
Our small class size enables students to receive a considerable amount of individual attention and instruction from their teachers. Teachers are therefore able to connect with each student to determine how to motivate and encourage them. Gateway Christian Academy also encourages parental involvement as we work with parents to educate their children.
N.B. The school accepts children from pre-school to Grade 1. However, we are currently working on having students up to Grade 6.
