Summer Jumpstart

Summer is here, which means for the Class of 2023, application season is just a few short months away! While it’s tempting to lounge by the pool, the days ahead are some of the most critical in a high schooler’s journey to college. Summer is a great time to set goals and check things off your to-do list!

That’s why Class 101 is excited to start again our Summer Jumpstart, a 90- day application prep designed to jump students into action when it matters the most. Beginning May 1, our college planning experts will work one-on-one with students so that when Common App opens on Aug. 1, they are ready to apply to schools.

Virtual College Nights!

Visiting colleges during the pandemic has been a challenge for our students. Class 101’s College Night allows students to virtually review a college of interest, meet with admissions, hear everything the school has to offer, and ask questions from those who know it best! By meeting with an admissions officer, you’ll get a realistic picture of what life is like at the university. The more you know, the better you can make the best decision for your future.

Our Lexington Students Say It Best

taylor-galavotti

Because of Class 101… wow, I really don’t think I can put it into words. I’m headed to my dream school. I have a resume that I’m proud of. I got my ACT score up. I’ve experienced the impact that positive affirmation can have on an overscheduled and under slept teenager. I understand the research process to find a school that fits for me. I’m not going to fall into the never-ending pit of despair that is student debt. I’m ready for whatever happens next.

I truly am.

Taylor Galavotti - High Point U

My family couldn’t have figured it all out without Betsy, our college planner. She was there for every moment and was a true support system throughout the entire process. She watched me grow and is now a part of our family.

Lauren Weiss - U of Cincinnati

This is the second time my family has worked with Class 101. With my college planner’s help, I was able to improve my grades and write an amazing essay while abroad in Frankfurt, Germany. This made the distance between the two of us negligible, even before social distancing measures were put in place! Without Class 101, I would have been lost within the endless information required for applying to college. Thank you for making this difficult transition year so much more bearable!

Because of Class 101 I have grown as a student and as a person. Preparing for college can be tricky for high schoolers. 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, Tom, 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. Every moment over the last few years has been worth it.
