Senior Profile

We recently shared a list of all the colleges and universities our Class 101 seniors were accepted this year. Our seniors put in the work, and it paid off with acceptances and scholarships from competitive colleges across the country. They had their pick of schools and most importantly, were able to choose a college that is right for them.

We work closely with students, some for up to five years prior to graduation, and there is nothing quite like celebrating their successes. We attend graduations and cheer. We attend open houses and eat a lot of cake. That part is really fun. Our hope is to stay in touch and continue celebrating the wins and excitement that follow high school and extend into college and beyond.

In short, the students and families we work with aren’t just numbers to us. But, once a year we collect data to understand how we are helping students be as competitive in the application and scholarship pools as possible and also be able to confidently share how we brought value to their college application process.

This year, we are thrilled to share the numbers because we think they speak for themselves. And, of course, because we are so proud of what we have accomplished together.

Class 101 served a total of 160 students in our senior class and helped them identify, visit, and apply to colleges across the country. We sat with students, answered questions, advised them on deadlines, and
determined the best way to apply to 784 applications. Through their hard work, volunteer efforts, test prep courses, extracurricular participation, essay writing workshops, and many hours of studying over the span of their high school careers, they received 736 college acceptances and a 93.9% acceptance rate. Numbers like these do not just happen without an immense amount of effort from a student and a support team of people who not only care about them but can expertly guide them through the many events and processes that lead to this kind of success. To say that we are proud is an understatement.

Scholarships and Financial Aid
One of our goals is to make college more affordable for families. We help students build the foundation in their early high school years and set themselves up for the greatest possible chance of receiving scholarships in order to make their college dreams possible. Identifying scholarship opportunities, editing essays and applications, coaching students on interviewing skills, and reviewing scholarship resumes are all part of our commitment to each student.

This year, our seniors received an average of $245,000 per student, in financial aid and a comprehensive total of $39 million in total merit scholarships. Congratulations to the Class of 2023 on these amazing achievements!
