I connected two of my relatives with Ronda, as they prepared for college. Both of their experiences were great. Ronda is attentive, competent and goes above and beyond for the students she serves. It’s truly a calling for her and the results depict that.

Picking a college, deciding a major, and preparing for the ACT are just some of the things that Class 101 has been able to help me with over the last few years. My college planner, was able to guide me through one of the most important chapters in my life and I am forever grateful. I joined Class 101 as a sophomore with very little idea of what direction I wanted to take my life in. Now, I am just a few months from beginning my first semester of nursing school at the University of Louisville. Without the help of Class 101, I would not have as much confidence in myself and my decisions.
