About Us

Gateway Christian Academy is a private Christian school owned and operated as a  ministry of Gateway Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia. GCA and is now in its 50th year. We feel it is vitally important to train young  people spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Gateway stands  hand-in-hand with Christian parents in fulfilling their biblical mandate to "train up a  child in the way he/she must go."


Mission Statement

It is the mission of Gateway Christian Academy, in partnership with Christian parents and strong Bible-believing churches, to help children come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, determining to follow His will for their lives. We believe we can best do this by training them spiritually, academically, socially, and physically to grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord according to Biblical truth.
