Our Westlake Village Students Say It Best


By the time senior year ended, I wanted to have a nice relationship with my kid. I wanted to feel like we enjoyed his senior year with him, but he had to get the college planning completed. Dinners at home were much nicer for my son’s senior year for sure.


We had a daughter who recently graduated and we tried to do all the prep for college by ourselves and ended up with a lot of anxiety and stress. The idea of getting into Class 101 was to alleviate that stress. With our oldest child, without Class 101, we had a lot more friction because we were trying to do it all ourselves. With Todd Mitmesser at Class 101, it just made it a lot more smooth and it exceeded expectations from that perspective.



We would absolutely recommend Class 101 … I honestly did not know what to expect in this process. I think it was great for my daughter to narrow the list based on her interests, her learning style, whether she wanted a large school, a smaller school, schools that did have her major.
