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.
Each year, millions of students head off to U.S. colleges and universities, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Each one of those rising college freshmen is a potential Class 101 client!
The average Class 101 student applies to 7-10 schools and earns $160,000 in scholarships and financial aid, while the typical non-Class 101 student applies to 2-3 schools and earns only $20,000 in scholarships and aid. On average, Class 101 students improve their SAT score by 170 points and their ACT score by 3.1 points.
Class 101 is positioned to become the college planning service of choice and is rapidly expanding with opportunities available throughout the United States. Are you self-motivated, want to make significant income, and enjoy working with and impacting the lives of young people? If empowering students and helping them find the perfect college excites you, our college planning franchise might be great fit. Explore our opportunity further and then take the first step toward changing the futures of students in your community.
