Our Mobile Students Say It Best


My journey with Class 101 began with ACT prep classes and then evolved into full college planning services. When I started with Class 101, I knew that I wanted to go to college, but I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go or what I wanted to study. Trying to figure out how to navigate setting up college tours, applying to colleges, and applying for scholarships is overwhelming. But, Dr. Childs and her team guided and supported me throughout the entire process, making it much easier. They were there to help me stay organized and to answer questions that I had along the way. They were also there to celebrate with me for every college acceptance and scholarship offer! It was truly a great experience and I am going to miss my Class 101 family!

My college advisor was Dr. Tracey Childs for Class 101. She met with me and worked tirelessly to help me achieve an 8 point ACT score increase and to find my dream school.

I work with Dr. Tracey Childs, and she has been helping me explore colleges and careers. In addition, I have improved my speed reading for the ACT. I look forward to the next three years with her.
