OwnerHi! My name is Kathy Jones, and I own Class 101-Cypress. I am a product of the Cypress Fairbanks School District and love the northwest Houston area. My husband and I have chosen to raise our two boys right here in Cypress! I earned my B.B.A. in Marketing from the University of Texas at Austin. After working in corporate America, I saw a chance to merge my business degree with my love for mentoring teenagers through Class 101. I view myself as a consultant, and I strive to help students identify their goals and take actionable steps to achieve those goals. I bring my commitment to excellence and desire to serve others to all my college planning students. I help students and families navigate the complex steps of college admissions and find the right fit school for THEM. Perhaps, we can even spark a bit of inspiration along the way.
OwnerHi! My name is James Jones, and I own Class 101 Cypress in conjunction with my wife, Kathy Jones. I am a lifelong Houstonian and have lived in northwest Houston (Cypress) specifically since 2007. Both our sons (and Kathy herself) are products of the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District. After starting at the University of Houston Honors College, I transferred and earned a B.A. in Economics from San Diego State University in 2005 and an M.B.A from Rice University in 2009. Though my background is in energy and finance, I have always had a deep appreciation for education’s importance and role in my life. I am also bilingual in Spanish! Getting the opportunity to work with my best friend and favorite person in the world (looking at you Kathy Jones) is an exciting and humbling journey. I want the next generation of young adults to benefit from the same experiences, life lessons, and general enrichment that accompanies higher education. By providing a warm (yet professional) environment and a never-ending pursuit of service, we strive to find the right fit school for each student while making the overall college process a little less stressful for families.
