Independent Thinkers. Self-Made Futures.™
“Creating future leaders that change the world by connecting people, personalities, passion and skills to a bigger future through higher education.”
MISSION & HISTORY
The PREPSKILLS® mission is to provide advanced preparation ensuring our students have endless opportunities. We do this by providing the highest quality preparatory learning experiences that serve to maximize individual potential, impart skills for leadership and inspire lessons in life-long learning.
We’re Proudly Canadian
We are a Canadian company that understands the Canadian curriculum. All our SSAT and SAT prep materials are proprietary and specifically designed with the Canadian versus the American curriculum in mind. Other test preparation materials in the market place are developed using only the American curriculum. The SSAT and SAT are standardized American tests and as such, there are some distinct transitional differences in the math and language areas that we can address.
PREPSKILLS® inspires students to reach their full potential, and assists parents in guiding them on their child’s educational journey. PREPSKILLS® is the Canadian leader in the provision of admission preparation services for students in Grades K to 12 seeking entrance to private and independent schools and U.S. Colleges and Universities. Founder and President, Joanna Severino, B. Comm., B. Ed., is an experienced and dedicated educator who is passionate about helping children attain skills for educational, personal and spiritual development through Knowledge – Choice – Success™. PREPSKILLS® offers students and families an inspirational and nurturing learning experience focused on skills for change; lessons in life-long learning and leadership development, and the enhancement of personal and professional aspirations. PREPSKILLS® inspires students to reach their full potential, while assisting their parents in guiding them on their educational journey.
Your Peace Of Mind
Our certified teachers and qualified instructors are specifically selected for their compatibility with the PREPSKILLS® philosophy, strategies, methodologies and curriculum. All attend our own preparatory seminars and workshops. Our teachers help students make the critical connection between understanding content and understanding the use of that content in a strenuous test-taking environment.
Parents Are Our Partners
We actively encourage parental involvement in our work. Further, we see our role as providing parents with assistance in navigating the complexity of the private school and university admission requirements. Parents should become familiar with the private school application processes and undertake to apply for both school admission and applicable testing approximately a year prior to the commencement of the entry school year. For students interested in applying to American Universities, the research process should begin as early as possible, and students should undertake to prepare and write the standardized tests ( PSAT, SAT, SAT subject tests or ACT) in Grade 10 or 11.
