The mission of Southgate Academy is to successfully promote a higher standard of education, establish a safe environment for learning and social development, and enable students to become lifelong responsible citizens.
We understand that students learn in various ways and at academic levels. It is our job to engage at their level and celebrate any success academic or not.
We provide various ways of support using a multi-tiered system.
We develop a genuine sense of value and belonging through social reinforcement with many community connections. Our goal is to empower our students to help gain confidence with academic interventions, counseling services, and Social Emotional Learning integration.
All children enrolled in our school can eat for free and there is no application required! The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally-assisted meal program. The program provides nutritionally balanced lunches to children each school day.

The MACILOS (Making a change in the Lives of Students, Staff, and Society) program is Based on Maslow's hierarchy of needs. It goes beyond academics to help students lead fulfilling lives to become lifelong responsible citizens. The younger students, learn to handle themselves in situations in school and in the community. The older students learn about their personality type and build themselves up from there with career planning, fine-tune college aspirations, and grow in their goals.

“ I strongly believe that if you can win the heart of a child, you will be a tool that is used to bring them a vision for success. It doesn’t matter what ethnic background a child is from, the financial status of their parents or what side of town a child lives on, single-family home or homeless, ‘Win their heart and they will respect and trust your leadership.”
