Academic Support

The Gateway High School Tutoring Program is a service for students who require or request additional support with homework and classwork. Tutoring support helps students build necessary skills, complete key assignments, and receive additional monitoring and support. Students can get help with specific subject areas or with general study skills such as homework management, organization, and test preparation.

Teachers or parents can refer students who are in need of additional assistance by contacting the Tutoring Program. Gateway's Tutoring program is open Monday-Thursday from 8 AM - 5 PM and Friday 8 AM - 3:35 PM.

The Study Cafe

The Study Cafe at Gateway is a safe space for students to study and welcomes any student who wants to ask a few questions or even just sit quietly and do homework in the company of others. Students of all levels are encouraged to take advantage of the Tutor Program to help maximize their opportunities for success in high school and later in college.

A welcoming atmosphere with academic and emotional support

Our volunteer tutors and study coaches are dedicated to helping our students succeed! We always remember that it is not easy to be a teenager, and asking for help with difficult coursework is a challenge all on its own.

Healthy snacks to help students focus

Food initially attracts many students to the program and often motivates them to continue attending. We typically have coffee, tea, water, and fruit available during the school day as well as a nutritious after school snack on Monday - Thursday, 3:45pm - 4:45pm. Students who voluntarily extend their school day need additional nourishment to continue focusing on their studies so late into the afternoon.
