Our Students Know Best


I feel so lucky to have had the support of Class 101. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to guide me in preparation for college than Andrew and Jackie. They are passionate and caring people, dedicated to helping others achieve success. They have a commitment to excellence and the lessons they taught me extended far beyond the classroom.

Class 101 helped me deal with the college application process and all the stress that comes with it. When I expressed an interest in aviation, they were able to help me find different schools that offered the kind of rigorous programs I was looking for. They even set up meetings with current students so I could better understand what my options were. Jackie and Andrew have helped me immensely.

I am so lucky to have been a part of the Class 101 family! It was incredibly helpful to have them assist and support me throughout the whole college application process. ACT prep and college planning both were so much easier with their help. I definitely would have been much more confused and discouraged if I hadn’t had their help.
