What Parents Say

Resources for Your Children

Did you know that, according to testing giants ACT and SAT, most high school graduates don't score high enough on college entrance exams to be considered "ready" for their key freshman classes in college? Now more than ever, parents are being encouraged to help their children improve study and test-taking skills - starting as early as middle school.

We can help your child learn how to prepare for the ACT and SAT - but we also offer so much more! Check out the Doorway to College Foundation roadmap, designed to help your student get started on the right path early:
