Class of 2023: Application Season is 75 days away. Are You Ready?

class 101 summer jumpstart

Now that summer is almost here, many high school juniors and parents find themselves stressed and in panic mode wondering when the college application process got so complicated!

“Why is college so expensive?”

“How in the world does my student find and apply to the right school?”

“Are we even doing this right?!”

These are three common questions we get asked here at Class 101 Monmouth, so if you’ve wondered this yourself, you’re not alone! The college application season is less than three months away, which may feel like time is slipping out of control.

However, Class 101’s Summer Jumpstart provides tailored guidance to each student in manageable bites throughout these warm months. This helps students and families get control of college planning and lets them own the application season! 

Throughout the summer, our college planning experts work one-on-one with your student to complete key college planning and application activities such as researching schools, building their resume, writing essays, and completing applications. 

Without the added stress of responsibilities at school, students are able to dedicate more time to these activities and complete them in a timely manner. Our accelerated roadmap is designed to jump students into action when it matters the most. Your student will enjoy these benefits because of it!

Five Ways Summer Jumpstart Leads to College Application Success

While success looks different to everyone, we think earning hundreds of thousands in scholarship money, increasing test scores, and getting into their dream college is a sure sign of it! Summer Jumpstart equips students with the means to achieving all three of these!

If your student is currently behind on the process, rest assured that they will be seasoned pros in no time. When the Common App opens on August 1st, we guarantee both you and your student will feel at ease when applying. Since the hard work has already been put in, you can rest easy in the knowledge that you are actually now ahead of the game! Below are five preparation activities your student will partake in to ensure college application success:

1. Development of the right college list – It’s important for your student to know what to look for when applying to colleges as their preferences, interests, and priorities are unlike anyone else’s

2. Resume building – A striking resume can make or break your student’s application status

3. Essay and application workshops – Admission offices will scour thousands of these a day, so it’s imperative to immediately catch their attention and stand out

4. Prepare for College Visits – College visits can be overwhelming and confusing, so we prepare you and your student on what to expect, and how to get the most out of each visit

5. Expert college application knowledge – While the application process can be confusing, it doesn’t have to be! We are here to guide you through it all, providing our specialized knowledge in its entirety from admission insiders
