Test Prep

Taking an SAT or ACT can intimidate even the most confident students. With admissions to selective colleges often riding squarely on reaching specific scores, this rite of passage requires careful preparation.

Out methodology recognizes the overlap of objectives between these exams and future success as a college student, so we often place tutors who either overtly support both high school coursework and the transition to exam time. Students and parents frequently tell us their increased confidence was as important to them as the scores they improved.

Valley Prep students commonly see SAT gains of 170-270 points and ACT gains of 4-7 points using our proprietary program. We stand by our results, and guarantee ongoing support if needed with retakes.

We began workign with Pamela Donnelly while Claire was in middle schiil to ensure we made that dream a reality.

My daughter Mia wa admitted to so many competitive colleges! Her main tutor became an important part of our family, and even attended Mia's graduation. Valley Prep made all the difference in our outcomes. I'm convinced that trusting the right support, including Pamela Donnelly's consulting and test prep from the tutoring team, is why Mia has transitioned so successfully. As a single mom of an only child, you can imagine how thankful I am!

GATE College System

Hey Mom and Dad ~

You and your high school student are facing the most unprecedented time in the history of college admissions in the US.

Sadly, many teens fail to receive the recognition that they truly deserve for all their hard work and aspiration, because the adults in their lives are confused about exactly how to help them.

Talk about challenging!

That stops now.

Ready to get digital? It's time to solve this very real and sticky problem.

Choose between two options: monthly GATE online support with weekly access via webinar to ask questions of GATE founder Pamela Donnelly, or a one-time GATE enrollment and take the lead yourself. It's that simple.

Until today, your limited available options required outsourced vendors offering piecemeal solutions, not a comprehensive, video-driven, step-by-step system led by a team of 40 professional educators (that's how many team members collaborated to make GATE amazing!).

Pamela and her team pledge to personally support all enrolled families in the monthly option through a weekly group webinar with Q & A. Access to ongoing support like this is worth thousands of dollars. Want to talk about a bargain?
That's included with your $247 GATE monthly enrollment.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE

Many of the strategies covered here begin earlier than parents expect. Do not make the rookie mistake of waiting to enroll under the false assumption you'll save money that way. The strategies and trainings in GATE, when applied as early as possible, have led to $35,000 and more in free tuition-but those opportunities are tied to making the right moves long before 12th grade.

Enroll your student now with a monthly subscription, and gain access to weekly Zoom links for Friday afternoon support live (recordings available).

Stop crossing your fingers in hopes that a counselor at their school will do 100% of what's truly needed for a competitive advantage and merit aid. Sad reality: the national average ratio is 482 students to 1.

Your teen is about to launch, and it's up to you to help them make that happen.

Make the move. OPEN the GATE for your son or daughter.
