Military School for Boys
Boys today who have gone off track in life need discipline and they need order. They need to learn to respect authority and loved ones. And most of all, they need God in their lives. Gateway features all of the elements that will have the most positive life-long impact on boys in the shortest possible time, administered by loving mentors and peers who encourage them to success. The military academy, accredited school, working ranch and farm, counseling and mentoring, competitive team sports, spiritual emphasis and our hands-on outreach to the community and missions trips to third world countries all combine to make young men all they can be, and more. Read the testimonials and imagine the impact this military-style program can have on your son who is struggling or perhaps has gotten into trouble with the law or has given up on school. Gateway is made up of caring, concerned staff, many whom have been in your situation with their own children. Our purpose in life is to help a self-destructing teenage boy do a turnaround and begin looking at life differently. Boys are given a new purpose, a new drive, and a new passion to be a better person and to serve others.
Please give us a call. Even if you determine that Gateway isn’t the right place for your boy, we are connected with a number of other similar schools across the country, from boys ranches to boot camps, and from wilderness programs to typical therapeutic boarding schools.
If you could see the before and after pictures of boys who have come through our program, you would see down and out boys prone to drug use who have become confident, happy, drug-free young men. You would see selfish boys with a chip on their shoulders who are now ready to give someone in need the shirt off their back. You would see boys without purpose who now have solid goals and direction for their life.
A year ago we were hurting and at a loss. This year we are missing our boy but knowing that he is in loving and capable hands. We are so proud of him. – Rachel (parent)
Gateway Military School was the best decision we have made in our entire life. Our son’s life was saved from destruction on this earth and for eternity. The education at Gateway was the finest he could have received anywhere. He became a self-disciplined student with motivated study habits and finished with a 3.9 GPA. He now has the desire and compassion to serve in his community and church, as well as tutoring and mentoring younger kids. — David and Joy (parents)
We had tried everything we could think of for our troubled son — tough love, Christian counseling, traditional church activities, and homeschooling. But all were to no avail. The military school format of Gateway taught John self-control, physical work and teamwork, leadership skills and integrity. John received love, discipline, forgiveness, and persistent mentoring from dedicated staff members. Gateway Military School is a God-send for our broken family…restoring our relationship with our son. It is a place of hope, a place of love, and a place of renewal. — Jessica (parent)
At Gateway I prayed by my bunk for the first time. I confessed my sins and gave my life to Jesus in that prayer. I regained the relationship I once had with my parents. I developed respect for authority, a work ethic, and learned how to love myself and others. Now I strive to make God proud of me. – Gabriel (cadet)
God used Gateway Military School in a mighty way in my life. What this program did for me is something that I cannot put into simple words, but I can say that I met Jesus Christ at Gateway. –Bryan (former cadet)
