What if every interaction and experience was designed to support them?

Welcome to Gateway

Gateway Academy is a trusted, sophisticated, multi-faceted treatment center for teenage boys. By addressing each youth individually, our evidence-based therapy ensures healing and healthy development. We create intentional interactions. From therapy to academics, outdoor adventures to social encounters, every interaction is designed to contribute to your child's healing and growth.

Each boy is unique. So are the individualized therapeutic treatment plans and interventions we create.

Our approach is personal. We strive to teach every youth to think creatively and analytically—for life.

It takes a home-like environment and a caring team to create a safe, empowering place to build relationships.

Nature, pushing oneself, exploring new skills. Nothing like getting outside for discovering what's inside.

Parent Involvement

Families play an integral role in ensuring that their youth's healing and growth is sustained well after their time at Gateway.

It's very gratifying to watch a young person's life course change. The teen who enters Gateway is not the same one who leaves. Who better than family can appreciate that success?


Youth Testimonial

I attended Gateway from October 18th, 2018 to October 18th, 2019.

It changed my life entirely. Before Gateway, I struggled immensely with anxiety, depression, A.D.H.D, and a lot of trauma. While I still struggle with all those aforementioned issues, I can say without a doubt that I wouldn't be here to work on them without the extraordinary staff and therapists at Gateway. I was held accountable and responsible in a way that I had never been before, and Gateway helped my family learn how to create a healthy structure for everyone to thrive, while I worked on deep-rooted issues and traumas. After exactly a year at Gateway, I left a changed person, and began stepping onto the path of the man that I'm still learning to be.

Forever and inexpressibly grateful.

Parent Testimonial

Gateway Academy is an extraordinary place and a model for what all residential schools should be, in my opinion. Our son returned home last month after spending a year there. He is so grateful for this experience as he knows that it set him up for success in life. He was helped and challenged in all the right ways. The focus on the whole being is evident, for example, in the use of the philosophy of the Healthy Mind Platter. With yoga, meditation and outdoor sports built into the curriculum, the young men learn how movement and team work facilitate learning. The therapy component is outstanding. The therapists and educational staff are so talented and caring and clearly love what they do. The owners are excellent at hiring the right people. Safety was never an issue. Our son is now an excellent communicator, takes responsibility for his actions, is a champ at emotion regulation, is confident and independent (interdependent), and our family life has never been better. It took a huge leap of faith to send our son there and it was the best parenting decision we ever made.
