Gateway Academy Charter School was formed this past summer by merging Achieve Community Charter School (K-8) and People's Preparatory Charter School (9-12), two schools that having been serving students and families in Newark for 13 years. As a full K-12 continuum, we start our college-focused academic programming in kindergarten and yield better results for Newark students for generations to come. We are so much more than a school; we are a full ecosystem of supports that spans from cradle to career. We provide our families with free wraparound services like prenatal care, career services, and housing support. Our high school alumni receive up to six years of post-graduate assistance. Gateway Academy attracts a diverse staff devoted to nurturing our students’ intellect and identities in order to prepare them to graduate from college and to chart their own course.
