Overview of City Gate
Our high quality blended learning program integrates face-to-face learning with technology-based and digital instruction. Learning takes place in a classroom environment through a personalized learning and interventions to help students close accumulated grade level deficits. Our comprehensive programs lay the framework for school readiness and help students develop skills to ensure academic and life success.
City Gate has provided a space where students have the opportunity to engage with subjects not taught in D.C. Public Schools. Youth can access important social, cultural, and intellectual capital for students to succeed in school and life. City Gate will provide between 15-20 days of offsite activity when school is not in session, essentially varied educational expeditions designed to keep students interested and engaged. Trips range from indoor (Smithsonian Museums) to outdoor (National Zoo, the Rock Creek Nature Center, and Planetarium).
We engage parents to remove barriers and support learning in the home. Parents are encouraged to volunteer at the sites with the children to build and develop relationships.
STEM focus (science, technology, engineering, and math) engages children in hands-on learning, critical thinking skills, and career opportunities where resources are not accessible to disadvantaged youth.
