Christian Military Boarding School in Florida for Boys

Contact Our School

Gateway Military Academy:
Located in Holmes County in northern Florida, Gateway Military Academy is a Christian military school for troubled boys ages 11-17 from all over the U.S.. We offer a life-changing residential boarding school program that builds self-esteem, respect and leadership along with top academics.

It is designed to have a huge impact on a difficult teenage boy who is struggling or perhaps has gotten into trouble with the law or has given up on school. Gateway is part of Teen Challenge, a prestigious national program for troubled teens.

Quality Programs for Troubled Teen Boys:

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 3rd world countries all combine to make young men all they can be, and more.

Gateway is made up of caring, concerned staff, whose 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.

Academic Programs for Troubled Boys Ages 11-17:

- Middle school (Grades 6-8)
- High School (Grades 9-12)
- G.E.D. (High School Equivalency Exam) study program
- ACT Testing for College Placement

Our Goal:
We are a residential boarding school working on life transformation in students 11-17 years of age.

Our primary goal is to help cadets grow in their Christian faith through Bible study, retreats, and mission trip opportunities. But more importantly, cadets are encouraged to challenge and encourage each other to live out their faith in everything they do and say.

Cadets pray for one another and challenge each other through positive peer pressure to walk in the righteousness of God which is demonstrated through the Godly character traits such as purity, honesty, and generosity.

We will introduce your son, age 11-17, to the peace and happiness that comes from a relationship with Christ. Our twice-weekly chapels are hallmarked by contemporary worship and prayer. Our evenings are occupied with character growth studies and group Bible discussions. Our staff are always available for a spiritual discussion and interject biblical themes into everything we do.

Parent Testimonials:

"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)

"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 gotten 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)
