Now in its 27th year, the Gateway Academy is a one-week residential, pre-college program intended to encourage eighth graders who are going into the ninth grade to think about, plan, and prepare for college. Since 1991, over 2100 middle/junior high school students have attended this program and 81 percent were attending college after high school graduation.
Washington Gateway, once fully funded by the state, is now fully supported by donations and Shepherd University. We need your help to continue a successful program. Make college a reality for youth today.
The Washington Gateway Academy is not possible without the support of our volunteers and counselors. Thank you to all our volunteers! You make an impact in each child’s life.
