Summer Power-Up


Summer is almost here, which means it’s time for high school students to take their college planning to the next level! To make sure that students are ready to seize the opportunity and can find a school that will help them pursue their passion we’re launching a new part of our college-planning package: Summer Power-Up.

Students will ignite their path to college with dedicated support and guidance from our Class 101 college advisors. All students will receive one-on-one help from college planning experts, access to personalized resources, and much more. 

Rising seniors can look forward to support by:

  • 1. College Lists: Working with an advisor to develop a list of top ten colleges and universities that align with their interests;
  • 2. Campus Visits: Learning how to make the most of college visits;
  • 3. Resume: Developing a resume that highlights their activities, honors, and work experience;
  • 4. Teacher Recommendations: Receiving guidance on requesting letters of recommendation from 1-2 teachers;
  • 5. Test Prep: Discussing and implementing a plan for test preparation to improve their scores; and
  • 6. College Essay: Receiving detailed feedback on their college essays to showcase their unique personality.

But that’s not all! In addition to these offerings for rising seniors, students entering their freshman through junior year can also participate. As part of the Class 101 Summer Power-Up, these students can learn about college application requirements and jumpstart their college planning process, including:

  • 1. Year in Review: Reviewing the previous school year with a Class 101 college advisor to set higher goals;
  • 2. Summer Goals: Developing a list of accomplishments to aim for over the summer break;
  • 3. College List: Creating or revisiting a list of top ten colleges and universities;
  • 4. Campus Visits: Guiding students on how to make the most of two college visits;
  • 5. Exploring Careers and Majors: Providing recommendations for summer activities such as camps, job shadowing, or networking with professionals in their field of interest; and
  • 6. Getting Involved: Finding at least one volunteer opportunity to enhance their resume.

This opportunity allows students to make the most of their summer, reducing stress during the rest of the year. With fewer school-related responsibilities, students can focus on long-term goals and dedicate themselves to practice tests, research, and resume-building without sacrificing the fun of summer.

Ready to elevate your college journey? This is just one of the benefits of being a Class 101 student. Don’t miss your chance to participate in our Summer Power up.
