“I owe it to Class 101 for not having to go into debt for college! They helped me from my first step of discovering what schools I wanted to go to, to figuring out all the insider information on application dates and requirements, to editing my essay, to submitting my applications before anyone else! I cannot recommend them enough to everyone and anyone I meet about to take on the stressful process of applying to college.

Class 101 was a huge advantage in the college process. Mrs. Feamster opened my eyes to other schools I had not considered, and helped me contemplate where to apply. Through ACT test prep, I was able to raise my score 5 points, which gave me more scholarship money. With Mrs. Feamster’s guidance, I decided to go to Auburn University, and have absolutely loved it! My freshman year was incredible and I have Mrs. Feamster and the rest of Class 101 to thank!
Class 101 demystified the college application process and made me confident about choosing Centre College. After getting to know the true me, Ms. Koehler suggested Centre and even had a current Centre student create a personalized video for me. She knew Centre would be a good fit for me because she was intuitive, a great listener, and patient, and she was 100% right. I will always be grateful to Class 101 and Ms. Koehler for leading me to Centre College.
