Legion Run Gateway Academy Closing at End of School Year


By ReGAIN Staff



Gateway Academy, one of the Legion run schools in Chesterfield (about 25 miles west of St Louis, Missouri) that had hoped to remain open despite financial issues, will be closing at the end of the current school year.

An informed source advised ReGAIN that the Legion had asked the Benedictines to sit on their board and say Mass primarily so they could retain their Catholic status. One of Gateway Academy founders jumped the gun and sent a notice to the parents (to encourage enrollment) stating that the Benedictines had agreed to help the school. This translated to the Benedictines taking over the school in the minds of the wishful parents and teachers but the Benedictines apparently were not considering managing the school.


Gateway Academy's demise was for the most part due to financial issues (driven by the LC) but the power of the press was also involved in this case. Apparently it attached enough creepy stigma to have a significant impact on new enrollments.


As a result of the loss of this school, the Legion will lose influence in the area.
