    “As an academic coach working with many first gen students whose families struggle financially, I’ve been so impressed with GATE College System’s digital platform. Being able to have our facilitators work alongside the kids in such a step-by-step program makes a huge difference. They enjoy it, and we love knowing we’re giving them a competitive advantage. We’ve seen positive, tangible results!”
