GATEWAYS Summer School


GATEWAYS Summer School provides fast-paced and enriching experiences for identified gifted and high-achieving children. Its curriculum does not cover basic skills; test scores are not required for admission into GATEWAYS.

Courses offered

GATEWAYS summer school is a non-profit, community-based program established by parents. Tuition pays for teacher salaries, room rental, and equipment costs so that we can offer a high-quality educational experience at an affordable price. Students also have an opportunity to explore their interests, ranging from marine biology to stained glass classes. Our curriculum is challenging, but instructors are highly qualified. Students take up to six classes daily!

The Gateways Scholarship Program pays a percentage of tuition for eligible practitioners working in early care and education or school-age child development (ECE/CD). They can use this scholarship towards earning either an Associate, Bachelor’s, or Master’s Degree in ECE/CD, complete coursework to advance on the Great START Wage Supplement Scale, or toward Gateways to Opportunity credentialing.

Scholarship recipients must fulfill a valid work commitment period at an eligible early care and education or school-age childcare program to qualify for the scholarship, submit grade reports to INCCRRA at the end of every semester or term, and remain in ECE/CD work for at least nine months in order for it to be renewed.

Tuition at Gateways Summer School depends on both the number of credits taken and the residency classification of each student enrolled; non-residents will incur higher tuition rates compared to Wisconsin residents. Therefore, applicants should contact Admissions directly in order to ascertain their costs.

Tuition does not cover all materials and service fees such as textbooks, lab supplies, and parking permits; students can pay these either in person at the Edgewood Campus or through online registration; check the academic calendar for refund schedules.

Students living in Wisconsin who attend one of the summer orientation sessions during June can take advantage of in-state tuition rates at the College of the Holy Cross. These sessions introduce newcomers to living and studying at CHC.

GATEWAYS Summer School provides an immersive, enriching experience for children entering grades 1-12. Classes are tailored to challenge students rather than cover basic skills, so parents should carefully consider which course best meets the needs of their child before selecting one.
