I’ve had a great time with the program. I love having someone who knows what’s going on and who is a great motivator to get work done. I didn’t really know what I was looking for college-wise until I joined the program. Now, I really feel like I’m setting great goals for what I want to do in the future!
Class 101 helped me raise my ACT score 6 points and gain acceptance to 4 Universities. I could not have been so successful in the college application process without Class 101. It was the smartest investment I made this year
Class 101 has been an amazing learning experience for me. It has not only improved my test scores but also opened my eyes to aspects of college that otherwise I would not have approached. I love this program and all it has done for me, I can not wait to see what role it plays in my future!
