College Planning Franchise Opportunity

Changing the Lives of Students and Entrepreneurs

At Class 101, we help high school students increase their chances of getting into colleges and qualify for more student aid and scholarships. We are a college planning franchise that addresses a common problem faced by college-seeking students: navigating the complex and confusing college application process.
