Karen Lane DeRosa simplified the process …
As a student and a parent, navigating the college admissions process is complex and challenging! With Class 101, Karen Lane DeRosa simplified the process and treated my student as if she were her very own!
I was put in the position to achieve as both a student and a person in my college career.
Mrs. DeRosa has been one of my most significant assets in my development as a student. Thinking about my college career was difficult, and Mrs. DeRosa pushed me to be the best student I could be in and out of the classroom. With her guidance, I was put in the position to achieve as both a student and a person in my college career. Her amazing ability to accommodate and understand my goals changed the landscape of my college experience.
Each time we meet, Karen brings new and important information to our attention!
We're thrilled to have Class 101 helping with our sons' college search and preparation. Karen's personality and professional experience, coupled with Class 101's resources, make her the perfect choice to help guide us through a process that can be both convoluted and intimidating. Each time we meet, Karen brings new and important information to our attention! We see our sons responding positively to her suggestions, and now plans for college are falling into place.

I loved everything about Class 101
With a senior who was very busy with football, school and other outside activities, we were feeling overwhelmed with the whole college application process. The deadlines were there, but he was struggling with finding the time to work on everything. As parents, we had every intention of sitting down with him on the weekends to get started, but it was a struggle. I called Karen and met for a consultation appointment. I loved everything about Class 101 - they get you started in ninth grade thinking about college, preparing you for taking the exams, college visits, applying for financial aid, scholarships, essays and so much more. We signed up to work with Karen, and she met with my son weekly. She helped him break down the process of applying to colleges so that it wasn't so overwhelming, and he was most impressed with the fact that he did have the time! He submitted his applications and had an acceptance letter ten days later! The next step is to work on applying for scholarships and select the school he will attend. Thank you, Karen and Class 101 for helping to alleviate the stress so that we can have an enjoyable senior year!
Karen will help set him up for success …
We’ve walked our two older boys through the college prep process and have still decided to take full advantage of CLASS 101 services. Karen started working with our third son when he was a sophomore. She helped him discover his passions and talents as a first step to searching for colleges that are the best fit for him. He might have followed in his brothers' or Dad's footsteps rather than following his dreams. Now, he is exploring what HE really loves and is pursuing his own path. We’ve already seen where Karen will help set him up for success as she guides him through test taking, essay writing, and the numerous college and scholarship applications. Every time Karen meets with our son, we are reminded of the amazing investment we are making in his future!
Mrs. DeRosa is one of the best teachers I have ever had.

No better evidence to the success of this program than my son’s ACT results!
Wow is all I can say...my son is a class of 2020 grad and I have been nothing but blown away with the Class 101 experience. There is no better evidence to the success of this program than my son’s ACT results! His composite score has jumped 5 points, and his science jumped 8 points! This doesn’t even scratch the surface of the personal attention and unbelievable kindness they show to their students. Worth every single penny of investment.
It was a 100+% return on our investment
Class 101 Dayton South has been an amazing resource for our Senior. She had taken the ACT multiple times and wanted to take it one more time to reach her goal in order to be eligible for higher scholarships at the colleges she had applied to. We met with Karen and decided the ACT prep class could help Loren achieve her goal...and it did!! We are forever thankful for Karen’s personal connection to the kids. It was a 100+% return on the investment. We will be using Class 101 Dayton South again for our other children.
