As first-time parents of a college-bound student, we knew that we could not begin to navigate this journey on our own. A friend told us about the outstanding services Class 101 provides for students.
From the moment we met with the Class 101 team, we know the investment would be priceless! Other than being informed of the decision our daughter and Class 101 were making together, we didn’t lift a finger in the entire process.
From applying to colleges, to college visits, to writing essays and preparing resumes, to test prep, to meeting deadlines, our daughter had professionals making sure that she got it right. We will make sure our other two daughters have the same advantage!
Kim, Randy, and the entire staff were simply amazing. They worked with all three of my children and saved my family approximately $70,000 in college tuition! Their positive and loving environment made all the difference for my family. They were more than college planners; they became part of our extended family! I cannot say enough great things about this organization and the staff. We would definitely recommend them to anyone! My family has worked with Class 101 for the last seven years with a focus on ACT/SAT and GRE! Love, love, love them all, they are a CLASS act!
We have been a part of the Class 101 family for over 6 years, and I can’t say enough fabulous things about Kim, Randy, and the other staff members. Their guidance and encouragement have been so helpful as we navigated the college landscape with our daughters. We could not have done it without them!
