Laura Mungia

Owner/College Planner

Hi! I’m Laura, the owner of Class 101 Overland Park. My husband, Thomas, and our two kids, Ian and Abigail moved from the Dallas-Fort Worth area to Overland Park in July of 2020. We have enjoyed calling the area HOME. I received my bachelor's degree in psychology from University of Texas at Arlington and my master’s degree in school counseling from Angelo State University. I taught 7th grade math for 5 years, and spent 6 years as a high school counselor, most recently in the Blue Valley School District. I enjoy working with students and families by assisting them in navigating the complex steps of college admissions, finding the right fit college for THEM and making college more affordable.

Our Overland Park Students Say It Best

Kai Oddo

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!

Centre College

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.

High Point U

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.
