Welcome to Class 101

Class 101 is a national college planning franchise that helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid. We address a common problem: the college application process is complicated, competitive and stressful, resulting in students who don’t get enough, or any, financial aid and often end up at the wrong school.

Millions of high school students enrolled as college freshmen at more than 4,000 institutions last year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. One in three freshmen drops out after his or her first year, according to U.S. News & World Report, and those who drop out struggle to recover.


Class 101 offers a unique program to address this issue, and it starts during the sophomore year of high school. Students work individually with a college planner and meet once a month for hour-long sessions throughout the year.


Personalized College Planning Services

Class 101 is a highly structured program for high school students that can start as early as the freshman year. Class 101 is a simple business to launch, and it meets the urgent need for a way to help students and parents maximize those college years, yet minimize the money spent.

Becoming a Class 101 franchisee is an amazing opportunity to help kids and their families find the right college at the right price. With an initial franchise fee of $27,500, you can launch a business that offers both high potential earnings and a strong sense of pride.
