Students Access Higher Education as GATE College System Launches Innovative Digital Platform

26 Ivy-League level educators introduce first holistic, comprehensive
college admissions program

colleges have seen a 108% increase in applicants over the past 15-years,
while acceptance to highly selective colleges has dropped by 15% during
the same time period
. With millions of families baffled by the
increasingly complex landscape of navigating competitive applications,
GATE College System (GATE) is proud to announce the first holistic,
comprehensive college admissions system. Offered digitally, GATE
provides step-by-step instruction designed by twenty-six Ivy-League
level educators on a mission to equalize access for students
everywhere, regardless of their socioeconomic level.

As a professional educator and admissions specialist, Pamela Donnelly,

, has dedicated the
past twenty years helping parents get their children into the best
possible colleges. “Our philosophy is that by championing the innate
potential of every student we help shape not only the individual but
culture as well,” says Donnelly. “Focusing myopically on test scores
fails to serve students, so our team created GATE College System to
unlock the secrets to successful college admissions with a broader

GATE’s acronym delineates the four sections of the system: Grades,
Applications, Testing and Essays. In seventy-two trainings, students
engage with academic support on computers, tablets or smart phones,
whether in schools or on the go. This digital program helps students understand
college options
, improve
study skills
, prepare
for either the ACT or SAT exam
, optimize college
, and demystify insider secrets about how to pay for college
with financial aid strategies.

Via its Los Angeles affiliate, Valley Prep Tutoring Services, GATE shows
significant point gains for students on both the SAT and ACT exams,
increased GPAs and improved acceptance rates to competitive schools.
Students who have implemented what they learned in GATE have also
received substantial merit aid and scholarships and gone on to
successful admissions to the most competitive colleges in America.

“We have one opportunity, at the 11th grade level, to get the testing
component right, but without the G, A and E of GATE, students feel they
are reduced to a single score,” cautions Donnelly. “Celebrating GATE
students as they successfully transition to the right colleges for them
is our true reward.”
