Message from Our Director

Welcome to Gateway College & Career Academy!

Thank you for visiting Gateway College and Career Academy. We welcome students from all over Riverside County to our historic and beautiful campus at Riverside City College. GCCA is about defining and reaching future goals. We believe that all students, no matter what barriers they may have faced in the past, are capable of being successful college students. Students will find GCCA to be a challenging and supportive school where they can study in a focused learning environment. Whether transferring to a university or completing a career technical education program, GCCA will help you reach your goals!

Our students receive the support of a highly qualified and passionate staff committed to the success of each and every student. Teachers, Counselors, Instructional Aides, and classified staff work closely to meet the needs of every student, making the time to understand each one individually. Our partnership with RCC allows students to have access to all the support programs and resources offered by the college, including the Student Health Center, Digital Library, Supplemental Instruction, and student organizations and clubs.

We are proud to be a unique educational option for youth in our community and are committed to continuously improving so that more students can take advantage of this great opportunity. This site will help you find some important information about our school, and should you have any questions, we would love to have you visit us in person. I look forward to meeting you!
