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.

Class 101 has helped me to have a sense of security in my college search. It has given me a plan that I can follow and someone to help me every step of the way. I feel confident that I can find and afford the right college for me because I know what to look for and how to pursue scholarships. I don’t know where I’d be in my college search without Class 101 and Mrs. Nicoya, but I am so grateful that I don’t have to find out.
At the beginning of my senior year, I had no clue of all the things I had to do to prepare for college. With Class 101, Mrs. Nicoya was able to guide and help me with everything. She helped me prepare for my ACT, my college essays, and all of the application process. I applied to seven schools and ended up getting into all of them. I know if I didn’t have the help of Class 101 that most likely wouldn’t have happened. I went from feeling 0% prepared to 100% prepared for my upcoming college years and it’s all because of Class 101 and Mrs. Nicoya!
My experience with class 101 has been amazing, Mrs. Nicoya helped me with more than I thought I needed help with. Prior to working with her, my ACT score was a 19, and after going through ACT pre with her, I got it up to a 27! She helped me with the finishing touches for my essays that really brought everything I wanted to be said together. Definitely would not be on top of deadlines and everything else without her. Truly one of the nicest, helpful, and most reliable people! Wouldn’t be at the point I’m at without you, Thank you for everything!
