Gateway Institute for Pre College Education
Formerly known as Gateway to Higher Education, started in NYC September 1986. Its initial goal was to prepare high school students from demographics underrepresented in science, medicine, and technology, for higher education in those fields. Gateway relies on its strong partnerships with the public school system, medical centers, cultural institutions, universities and research facilities.
Requirements for admission
Students had to meet certain basic criteria to be accepted into the program. They had to:
  • score above the 50th percentile both in New York City’s Seventh Grade Math test and in its Degrees of Reading Power test,
  • have regular attendance
  • generally have grades above 80 on a 100-point scale
  • strong family support
  • desire to pursue a science-based career


This is our typical high school track aimed at graduating students in the customary 4 year schedule, while providing opportunities for Advanced Placement and College Now classes.
