Our Families Say it Best

Class 101 has been a tremendous ally for our family as my oldest son (currently a high school junior) is in the full swing of his college search, taking the ACT, and looking for scholarships. John and Joyce have been super supportive and have challenged Joshua to think bigger. I’m confident that Joshua will be fully prepared thanks to the Class 101 team.

When talking about a college major, my son would shrug his shoulders and say, “I don’t know.”

My anxiety evaporated when I realized that Class 101 would be a partner helping me to navigate this journey to college.

As my son’s freshmen year concludes, his comments are now, “Oh, I can add that to my résumé.” “Yes, I would like to see the engineering program at Mississippi.” These words are the guidance results from Class 101. College is no longer this bewildering black hole. My son is more confident as Class 101 helps him articulate his interests into a major at possible colleges and potential careers while not bankrupting our pocketbook.

John Charbonnet excels as my son’s Class 101 guide and mentor. His patience and wisdom are unparalleled. I can’t wait for year 2 with Class 101.

From the moment I worked with Mr. Charbonnet, I instantly knew that we had great chemistry, and I truly believe that the college application process was considerably easier with his help. Whether it was working on essays, researching colleges, or applying for scholarships, Mr. Charbonnet and I always worked as a team, and his invaluable advice ultimately helped me get accepted to my target university. As Mr. Charbonnet always said, “Job’s not finished,” which means that no matter what goals you’ve accomplished, there’s always something to grind and work towards. I cannot thank Mr. Charbonnet and the Class 101 team enough at the end of this amazing journey.
