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.

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!
