Our Investment Was Priceless

From the moment we met with the Class 101 team we knew the investment would be priceless! We will make sure our other two daughters have the same advantage!

Being smart gets you to the answer, but knowing how to answer matters just as much.

The ACT prep class was really helpful for me because I had a designated time to forget everything else and focus only on the ACT. Being brilliant doesn't mean you score well. At some point, it's more about how to take the test and understanding what the test is looking for. The class really helped me understand what the ACT wanted, how I should answer, and where to look. Being smart gets you to the answer, but knowing how to answer matters just as much.

I got into my dream school

Class 101 has helped me every step of the way in my college process. The most beneficial thing I received from Class 101 was help improving my GPA. I learned fundamentals from Class 101 so that I could really understand the material in my classes at school. With help from Class 101, I got into my dream school and received an academic scholarship for $66,000. I'm so grateful for all that they do.

Class 101 made a very daunting task feel easy

Class 101 has helped me greatly for the past 3 years. I started with Class 101 when I was a sophomore and we first focused on my ACT. After completing the ACT course and working on the issues that needed extra work, I was able to raise my score by 5 points. We then focused on getting in all of my college and scholarship applications. Class 101 made a very daunting task feel easy with their support and guidance throughout the application process. Class 101 is a wonderful place with wonderful staff. I recommend Class 101 to everyone continuing their education after high school.

This is impressive!

 

This is impressive stuff. Love how it requires the student to think about their future, get invested and take ownership.

It allows the student to grow independently and explore options in a very genuine way

This is fantastic!! My daughter came downstairs immediately and told me how excited she was about the program and about working with you. I just think it is so valuable to have someone other than a parent facilitate this process. It allows the student to grow independently and explore options in a very genuine way… without the pressure of perceived desires from loving parents. 😉

Partnering with Class 101 is unquestionably one of the best decisions I ever made!

Partnering with Class 101 is unquestionably one of the best decisions I ever made. First, they carefully analyze your child and develop a strategy unique to their personality. Then they follow through by reinforcing soft spots in a student’s academic skill set, while enhancing the areas that are already capable. Additionally, they liberate the parent from the arduous tasks of applying for college admissions and scholarships. I watched them scour the academic landscape, turning up institutions and financial opportunities I never would have found on my own. The short-term results are astounding. My daughter is a junior, and her ACT score has gone up six points in six months. John and Joyce care about your child, and they’re great allies for parents who need an assist. Kudos to the Charbonnets and Class 101.

I would recommend all parents enroll their children in Class 101

I would recommend all parents enroll their children in Class 101, especially those who are at a financial disadvantage when it comes to paying for college tuition. Class 101 isn't about a parent paying someone to find a college and get them enrolled, it's a motivator and an educator. Without Class 101 and the Charbonnets, I wouldn't have known how to raise my ACT and SAT scores the way I did, the best way to write a college admissions essay, or where to find scholarships that fit my needs. They provide many other high-quality programs. I feel a parent would be putting their child at a disadvantage by passing up this opportunity.

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

April 2020

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 is unparalleled. I can’t wait for year 2 with Class 101.

His composite score went up a total of 5 points

Class 101 was the perfect environment for our son. John and Joyce went above and beyond to make sure he was prepared. His composite score went up a total of 5 points after completing a 4-week session and taking the calculator review. The bump in his score equaled more scholarship money and we couldn't be happier. I highly recommend you check them out!

I hope all is well. Our daughter, Claire, is renting a house in Lakeview for grad school. When we got talking to the landlord and realized the Charbonnet connection she RAVED about your company and how it helped their daughter, Ashley St. Pierre, raise her scores to get a better tuition rate. Great job. DC
