Our Success

Founded in 2004, by Henry Qu, Gateway extended its operations into the US in 2010 on the West Coast. Since then, Gateway has expanded to the East Coast of the US and Vietnam. With 15 years of established international recruiting and homestay programmes and a global network of over 500 agents, Gateway truly is an international enterprise.

Our Services

Gateway’s services include assistance with the private high school application, admissions process and host family placement. Throughout the process – pre-arrival, departure and stay – Gateway is there for the international student, offering guidance and support. With Gateway’s help, the student learns how to adapt to a different country, culture, education system and host family. Gateway has established relationships with schools and host families and all parties work together in mutual understanding and respect to create and maintain an enjoyable and rewarding experience for all involved in the student’s journey.

Our service includes but is not limited to:

  • Advice and assistance on school selection
  • Help with admissions process
  • Online induction
  • Guardianship staff who mentor and support the student
  • Meet and greet
  • Assistance with travel arrangements
  • Registration with police, health services, banks and BRP
