About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower students, serve families, and inspire greatness. We know that applying to college can be overwhelming, which is why we strive to make this process enjoyable for families. We navigate the complex, multi-year process by working one-on-one with students as early as their freshman year of high school. But it’s not just about getting into college. At the core of everything we do is a passion for helping young people find their future.

Our Students Know Best

I would absolutely recommend Class 101. Online training course and study videos were very helpful. After every weekly coaching sessions, we would receive a report in the form of an email recapping Maxwell’s progress and laying out his goals for the following week. We didn’t have to guess whether or not Maxwell was doing the work because he was in constant communication. Overall, Maxwell raised his total ACT score by 6 points from the first time he took the test in his junior year. – V. James, Class 101 Parent
