Our Springfield Students Say It Best

Having Laurie there to help me remember college deadlines, giving me scholarships to apply for, and helping me be completely ready for college was absolutely amazing.  The ACT class that is included is also great and helped me raise my score a total of 8 points.  Without Class 101 I would have been clueless on much of the process but with their help, I have been able to earn enough money from scholarships to almost completely pay for my college tuition, room, and board!


Missouri S&T

Being the oldest child in my family, my parents didn’t know where to start when it came to scholarship opportunities, financial aid, enrollment and deadlines.  After finding Class 101 a stressor was lifted off all of our shoulders.  The college enrollment process was easy and stress-free.  All deadlines were met, and Laurie was there to answer any questions that I had throughout the entire process.  I would definitely recommend Class 101 to anyone interested in going to college!


Missouri State University

We are so pleased with Laurie and her classes. I can’t imagine trying to navigate all the planning/ scheduling without her knowledge and assistance.


Student-tested. Parent-approved.
