Academy

The National Gateway Academy was originally formed through research and development of directed electromagnetic radiation solutions for global technology firms and followed the curriculum outlined below; however, we currently work exclusively through established non-profit organizations with protections under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  This new charter works closely with existing academic leadership to incorporate legacy analog (such as E&M circuit) history and the Socratic method of learning when guiding students into the digital realm.



Original Charter and Founding Principles


As millions of digital packets flow through systems, complex routing decisions are both originally and ultimately based on simple binary switches.  These binary switches (or signals) may further represent twenty-six English letters (or relatively few amino acids) from which complex tomes (and life) are constructed, in addition to other languages, designs, and magnificent works of art.


Requirement:  Young people of this world yearn for direction and leadership.  They seek truth and wisdom but neither find it when looking nor trust it when found.  With the combined talents and funds of National Gateway contributors, knowledge from all areas is delivered to students who demonstrate the ability and desire to serve as global leaders.


Directive:  All systems are formed on the binary decisions of each living organism whose destiny is based on a course leading toward a goal (telos).  The function of the academic leg of National Gateway is to facilitate meaningful learning (input), clearly define goals through a logical journey of binary decisions (process), and accomplish meaningful results (output).


Curriculum:  It is imperative that students understand the importance of independent thought and accept the consequences of their actions.  Teamwork is effective only after personal agency and responsibility are internalized.


1.  Communication - Students will study the history and future of communication.  They must be fluent in at least three languages, including a computer programming language.


2.  Law - Students must graduate with an understanding of the laws governing their areas of research.


3.  Ethics - Students must understand the spiritual and emotional influence of local beliefs.


4.  Economics - Students must demonstrate fiscal responsibility, leadership, and cooperation by working within one of the applied science centers.  They must feel confident while working through local and international trade procedures.


5.  Health - This pertains to the students and their environment.  Students are expected to maintain optimum health through proper nutrition and exercise.  They are to learn agricultural methods of sustaining micro and macro populations through the study of, and contribution to, the latest scientific and medical journals.  They must show, through thesis and application, their ability to build and protect communities of varying size.
