Steven Craig

Owner/College Planner

Steven is the owner and primary college planner for Class 101 in New London County, Connecticut. He attended and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Secondary Education from Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, CT. Following his graduation, Steve dedicated the next thirty years to serving as an alternative educator, teaching both high school English and Social Studies in offsite programs for several regional education service centers and school districts. Working with at-risk students as a teacher-advisor was a career-long passion, and he had the opportunity and privilege to support the needs of countless students and families during that time. Steven's love for teaching and learning, along with his desire to continue supporting high school students, was a significant factor in his decision to join Class 101. He aims to contribute to its mission of empowering, serving, and inspiring young people. When he is not in the classroom or office, he enjoys spending time with his adult children, Kendra and Garrett, attending live sports and music events, and playing guitar (poorly).

Our New London Students Say It Best

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… 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.

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.
