Gateway Christian Schools is recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education as a Category IV, church-related school, exempt from accreditation. Parents must agree to abide by Gateway's policies and guidelines while their children are enrolled at Gateway. Grades and credits are awarded at Gateway's discretion. Each family is responsible for its own "school." As parent-teachers, you have as much freedom and flexibility as possible to administer your own "school," choose and obtain your own curriculum, and evaluate your own progress.
