Owner & College PlannerChris attended Boston University with a full academic scholarship and graduated with his Bachelor's of Science from the School of Education in May 2009. Since then, he has dedicated his career to students of all ages, holding teaching and administrative positions at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. He has also earned his M.Ed in Special Education and has significant coursework toward his Ed.D in Educational Leadership. While working at the high school level, Chris realized his passion for college planning and advising. After helping hundreds of high school students develop their college lists, coordinate college visits, improve SAT and ACT scores, and write their college essays and scholarships, Chris understands the importance of empowering teenagers to find the right fit for college at the right price and joined Class 101 as a certified college planner.
This is the second time my family has worked with Class 101. With my college planner’s help, I was able to improve my grades and write an amazing essay while abroad in Frankfurt, Germany. This made the distance between the two of us negligible, even before social distancing measures were put in place! Without Class 101, I would have been lost within the endless information required for applying to college. Thank you for making this difficult transition year so much more bearable!
Because of Class 101… wow, I really don’t think I can put it into words. I’m headed to my dream school. I have a resume that I’m proud of. I got my ACT score up. I’ve experienced the impact that positive affirmation can have on an overscheduled and under slept teenager. I understand the research process to find a school that fits for me. I’m not going to fall into the never-ending pit of despair that is student debt. I’m ready for whatever happens next.
I truly am.

Because of Class 101 I have grown as a student and as a person. Preparing for college can be tricky for high schoolers. Picking a college, deciding a major, and preparing for the ACT are just some of the things that Class 101 has been able to help me with over the last few years. My college planner, Tom, was able to guide me through one of the most important chapters in my life and I am forever grateful. I joined Class 101 as a sophomore with very little idea of what direction I wanted to take my life in. Now, I am just a few months from beginning my first semester of nursing school at the University of Louisville. Without the help of Class 101, I would not have as much confidence in myself and my decisions. Every moment over the last few years has been worth it.
