Class 101 Is a Great First Franchise Choice For Business-Minded Individuals From Diverse Careers

Low Startup Costs and Strong Training Attract Those With a Passion for Success in Business and a Desire to Help Students Succeed in College

A financial planner, a teacher, and a college basketball coach — are just a few examples of entrepreneurial individuals with a passion for helping others who have opened Class 101 college planning franchise locations in the past year. Although Class 101 owners work closely with high school students, you don’t need teaching experience to thrive in this business, but you do need the drive to succeed in business and a passion for helping teenagers find the right college at the right price.

If you’re looking for a low-cost, easy-to-launch franchise and have a passion for working with high school students, Class 101 is seeking new owners to join our family of franchisees. The need for our services has never been greater. Traditional high school counselors are overwhelmed, busy families need help navigating the college application process and tuition continues to rise.

Class 101 is an attractive, low-cost investment for individuals new to franchising who want to make a difference in the lives of young people and align themselves with a proven business model. Entrepreneur Magazine has even recognized our college planning franchise as a Top Franchise Opportunity for Less than $50,000.

“This recent recognition from Entrepreneur is just one more validation of our business model. We offer business-minded individuals with a passion for helping young people the chance to own a business that is not only one that they can be proud of but also potentially profitable,” says Tom Pabin, Founder of Class 101.

Class 101 national college planning franchise helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid. The college application process is complicated and stressful, often resulting in students who get little or no financial aid and end up at the wrong schools. Class 101 addresses this need by meeting one-on-one with students throughout the year, which results in higher GPAs as well as ACT and SAT scores.

Additionally, our college planning experts guide students as they draft a high-performance resume and powerful essays, visit schools, complete applications ahead of schedule and navigate scholarship and financial aid processes. The results are phenomenal. Class 101 students receive more than $160,000 in scholarships and aid on average, compared with U.S. high school student, who on average receives just $20,000 in scholarships and aid.

With low startup costs and a proven business model backed by two decades of success, members of the Class 101 franchise family come from a wide array of backgrounds, but they all share a love for helping others and a passion to succeed in business.

“As Class 101 grows, it’s more important than ever to ensure we have a centralized location for marketing, training, and support materials. I’m excited about the continual improvements to the resources available to our family of franchisees,” Tom says. “We are building the Class 101 brand nationwide, and a strong training and support platform is critical to ensuring our franchisees’ ongoing success.”
