Our Education Franchise Clients Increase Test Scores & Grades

The Class 101 college planning franchise has a proven system that results in better grades, higher ACT and SAT scores, and compelling college entrance essays that help high school seniors clinch entrance into the right college at the right price.

Our college planning services include the following:

  • Developing a college list
  • Visiting colleges
  • Improving grades
  • Preparing for ACT/SAT/PSAT tests
  • Upgrading resume
  • Crafting college essays
  • Managing applications and deadlines
  • Exploring scholarship opportunities
  • Pursuing financial aid (FAFSA)
  • Transitioning to college

Our education franchise is able to save families an average of $160,000 in merit-based scholarships alone. And with college costs rising at a rate of 6% above the rate of inflation (long-term), that is an incredibly attractive ROI.

“Paying for the services provided by Class 101 provides parents with peace of mind,” says FounderTom Pabin.

Today’s college graduates are still feeling the impact of the Great Recession. It’s more important than ever to streamline the college application process and ensure a graduate’s successful entrance into the job market. Due to young college graduates’ limited job opportunities, stagnating wages, and the rising cost of higher education, college is becoming an increasingly difficult investment.

Class 101 Results in Happier Students, Higher Retention Rates

The individualized attention we spend on a student’s core college list results in higher retention rates. Happy college students are successful college students, and the time-management and testing skills we instill in our Class 101 clients will help them on the college campus and beyond.

The typical transfer rate for college freshmen is 30%, but for Class 101 students it is less than 5%. Why? Because we work one-on-one with students to ensure they have laid the groundwork to ensure a successful college career. The typical public high school counselor is able to carve out 38 minutes per student on the college application process, according to The Atlantic. The result is a strained system in which many students apply and get accepted to the wrong college and end up paying more than they should.

Class 101 Helps Families Save Significantly on College Costs

More than 40 million Americans are saddled with student loan debt. Collectively, they owe more than $1.3 trillion, and that figure is growing at a rate of nearly $3,000 per second, according to Experian. The average student loan balance is $29,000.

Class 101 students on average bump up their ACT score by 3.1 points, which can equate to significant additional dollars available to high school seniors to help lessen the blow of tuition costs.

The Class 101 system works. Our education franchise is able to help high school seniors earn an average of $160,000 in merit-based scholarships alone. And with college costs rising at a rate of 6% above the rate of inflation (long-term), that is an incredibly attractive ROI.
