Principal's  Message
The aim of our Counseling program is to provide students and families the support they need during their high school experience and to prepare them for future success in college and beyond. Staffed by the Assistant Principal, Mental Health Counselor, and Student Support Coordinator, the Student Support Office (SSO) is Gateway’s hub for meeting daily student needs.

The Gateway High School SSO is open from 8:30 AM -4:00 PM daily. The SSO is available to student drop-ins during the school day, as well as during lunch. Students may also access SSO services during the school day by asking for passes from their teachers.

Gateway's college counseling program, led by two full-time college counselors, helps to ensure that all students successfully navigate the college preparation and admissions process.

In the spring of their junior year, students take the first part of a college counseling course where they explore careers, majors, different colleges, and prepare for the SAT. During their senior year, students take the second part of the college counseling course where they are guided through the admission process, essay writing, financial aid, and scholarship opportunities.
