INTERDISTRICT SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAM DESCRIPTION & CRITERIA:
The Boonton School District introduced the Gateway Academy as an interdistrict school choice option for students who live within twenty miles of Boonton High School in September 2013. This academy program is designed for students who meet stringent academic criteria.
If accepted into the Gateway Academy, participating students engage in academic coursework that will provide the opportunity to gain a full year of collegiate credit during the regular school day at Boonton High School and within the traditional four year high school period. Unique academic experiences compliment Boonton High School’s Gateway Academy. Academy students also have the distinct honor of touring Ivy League campuses each year. Each month, Gateway Academy students attend and present at lunchbox lectures. Gateway Academy students also participate in a targeted four-year mentor program that will enhance leadership skills and culminate in a unique senior year multi-media thesis project.
The Gateway Academy is not a segregated program. Students are fully integrated into the vibrant culture of Boonton High School’s extra- and co-curricular programs and enjoy the school’s enhanced facilities and innovative new activities. Boonton High School is a small, comprehensive academic school that promotes student achievement, creative growth, and leadership development. Forging connections with students and parents is paramount to the staff and administrators of Boonton High School.
