Loomis Gateway Academy Alumni
Loomis Gateway students have graduated college and moved on to careers in heath care, education, and law enforcement... just to name a few!
One of LGA’s first students going back to 2009-10 who is now in nursing school, from her mother…”Another session done for Hannah with an A and A- in Health Assessment II and Fundamentals of Nursing. She now has a well deserved 3 week break. She told me the other day, ‘I feel like I’ve really found my thing with nursing.’ Thank you and Stuart again for your help, insight, love and mentorship to build the foundation of where Hannah is today.”
"I used to be tutored by Tesa and Stuart in 2012 till around 2014. I could not find their personal emails. I am not sure who receives emails at this address but if it is not either of them is there any chance you could forward them this email or give me their email address? I want to tell them thank you because without them I do not think I would be where I am today. In less than two weeks I am graduating college with a bachelor's degree is psychology from California State University of Monterey Bay. Both of you helped me tremendously. I was never confident in myself when it came to school and within two and a half years of working with both of you, I became someone confident in my ability to not only read, write, and spell but continue my education after high school. I am graduating with a GPA of 3.7 and this upcoming summer I am continuing my education by getting my multi subject teaching credential. I would not have been able to accomplish any of this without either of you. Both of you changed my life. So, Tesa and Stuart thank you! I hope you both are doing well! "
“Tina had a 4.2!!! at Whitney High School mostly AP courses and has done very well until this year. She will be attending Baylor University in the fall-if the world allows, and has received a few substantial academic scholarships as well...and you and Stuart helped her so much! Thank you!”
One of our first graduating students out of our full time program in 2014: graduated from El Dorado Hills HS in 2019. My note to her mom in response to her news…Teresa, I cried when I got to the part of Madison being accepted at ALL 10 colleges she applied to, and Madison, I cried when I read your words describing the girl I met 6 years ago. We are happy and proud to have been part of your journey and wish you all the best in all you do.
"Hello, this message is mostly for Stuart and Tesa! While Luke still misses LGA he has done remarkably well this year. Yesterday he got up in front of an assembly and spoke about his dyslexia. I know he wouldn't have been able to understand his dyslexia nor speak about it so easily to his peers without having had the support you gave him at LGA. Thank you again for supporting us over the last few years and helping Luke to be in such a good head space with everything!"
"She did it! Lillian graduated High School this morning with an overall unweighted GPA of 3.01 and received an Advanced Drama sash in which the Visual and Performing Arts Department awarded her with their department award! She is so proud of herself today and we are too! I had to share this with you because without you two today's story would have been different! We love you guys! Thank you, Thank you!"
I recently graduated Suma Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain University College of Nursing! This makes me Loomis Gateway Academy's first college graduate! My path was paved by the help of both Stuart and Tesa. I am more confident in my ability to learn and my level of intelligence then I ever have been, knowing that if I find the way I need to learn information, I can indeed learn it! My future is bright. Thank you!
Ms. Tesa, I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am that I found you and LGA. I want to say thank you for teaching me how to cope with my dyslexia. Before I came to the school, my teachers would give me programs that did not help my dyslexia in the slightest. Now I can read and write with relatively favorable accuracy. I can type very fast now, too. You made me look at reading in a different way. I remember reading being a treacherous task, but now I can read chapter books without even thinking about it. So many of my kids like me are struggling to read and write and thankfully a school LGA exists. In conclusion, you impacted my life in a beautiful way and I very much appreciate that.
Jeremy Webster-Hawkins graduated from LGA in May, 2019. He is a senior this year who has been accepted to multiple colleges, some with a Volleyball scholarship, others--UC Davis for one--on his academic achievements.
