Is your school accredited?
Gateway Prep Academy’s curriculum and teaching methods are based on existing successful alternative education programs. Gateway Prep Academy’s accreditation with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is in process. We are using the LAUSD Diploma Plus model (a California State Board of Education approved diploma program), which enables students to earn their diploma on time or early, regardless of how deficient the student is in high school credits.
Do GPA students meet district and state proficiency standards for graduation?
Yes. Students must meet all district and state requirements for graduation,
including the California High School Exit Exam, just as they would at any high school in California.
How much does your program cost?
Full student tuition is $125 per month. Our goal is to provide a private school environment that’s affordable, two things which rarely go together. Gateway Academy is not funded through any public or federal funds; all expenses are paid through student tuition and private donations. We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization; donations are tax-deductible and allow us to offer work/study programs and scholarships to students with financial needs.
Can GPA students return to high school?
That’s the plan! For many students, our program is a non-traditional way of re-joining the traditional education system. Our major focus is to capture at-risk students, give them a chance to recover credits, and either return to the mainstream educational system or graduate with us. Credits earned at GPA are fully transferable to local area high schools and adult education facilities.
Students may attend GPA for educational assistance while simultaneously attending another high school. Everything we do is designed to aid the local school districts; we’re in cooperation, not competition.

Our curriculum is competency-based, creating an easy entry/easy exit enrollment. However, we have a limited number of spaces, and enrollment is based on availability. You should contact us as soon as possible to ensure a
space is reserved for you.
