The Gateway curriculum has been designed to elevate students’ academic skills and productivity in preparation for transfer to Notre Dame for the sophomore year. Gateway students have found that being able to engage both in the Notre Dame and Holy Cross communities truly gives them a four-year collegiate experience.
