Ideal Candidate

What We Look for In a College Planning Franchise Owner

Class 101 college planning franchise owners come from many careers and have a wide variety of education and job backgrounds. Some are former educators; some have worked in colleges. Others have served as youth ministers or are parents who have been through the college admission process and see the obvious challenges that American students face. Though having a background in education is helpful, it certainly isn’t required for our college prep franchise.

If you have a love for working with kids and are passionate about helping students take advantage of college opportunities, you may be a great fit for Class 101.
