Gateway Community Charters Foundation continues to refine, improve and fulfill its vision of supporting students and families with an emphasis on serving vulnerable and underserved populations. As GCC enters its twentieth year of operation, we are inspired by our Dream, Design, Adapt and Persevere motto and continue to 'be brave,' which inspires our work across our eight schools and 20 physical locations. The Gateway Community Charters Foundation has a mission that drives our work to ensure a) that our students will be prepared to succeed in the world they live in now and the one they will inhabit in the future and b) that our organization retains its focus on innovation, autonomy, and sustainability. 

Gateway Community Charter Schools continues to serve students located within many of our most at-risk, historically underserved, and disenfranchised communities within the Sacramento region. All of our school sites qualify for the Free and Reduced lunch programs, based on the dire needs of our students and the communities they live in. Nearly 80% of all Gateway Community Charter students are classified as being "socioeconomically disadvantaged" as indicated by the CA Department of Education.  These indicators acknowledge that outside forces have either not served the student or population well or have assigned the at-risk label to unwitting subjects. Gateway Community Charters is dedicated to providing all students a continuum of care through educational, individual, and family support to ensure academic advancement and the growth of their social well-being. Our students have needs above and beyond basic academic necessities, thus our invitation to garner your support to allow Gateway Community Charters to best serve each and every student.
