For over 50 years, Gatewood has served Eatonton, Lake Country, and six surrounding counties in central Georgia.  Our mission is to provide the best educational opportunities available in a nurturing Christian environment while instilling life-long characteristics of faith, honor, and loyalty.  We are committed to forming well-rounded young men and women who are well prepared for college and life’s challenges.

Our academic programs provide rigor and relevance offering Honors, AP, and Dual Enrollment opportunities. Our arts and performing arts programs are growing, and we are competitive in fourteen different sports for both boys and girls.

We continue to improve our campus each year and have plans in place for future improvement and expansion.  Our school has benefitted greatly from the love, support, and generosity of parents, and people in our community.

Thank you for your interest in Gatewood.  Please feel welcome to visit us for a tour, find out more about our school, or come join us on a Friday night to cheer on the Gators.
