CityGate Preparatory Academy

Ages 2-4, VPK & Grade K

CityGate Preparatory Academy is a place where blossoming geniuses can begin their journey of successful leadership. Not only will the children be engaged in fun and interactive academics, they will also be prepared for a lifelong journey and enjoyment of learning!


Led by Ms. Sherry Magwood, a longtime educator, the children are introduced to the basics of education at an early age and taught the philosophy that learning is all around us. They also learn how they are a part of a community and to become responsible and loving citizens to everyone around them. 


At CityGate Preparatory Academy, we are laying the foundation for a new generation!
