Soaring College Tuition, Competition, Drives Big Demand for College Franchise

The competition and cost of getting into a good college has never been tougher, and one company is rapidly expanding to help students become more attractive to each college on their wish list, and how to afford the costs.

Class 101 is a national franchise that helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for more scholarships and financial aid. Because the application process has become so complicated, many students who get little or no help often end up at the wrong school, the company has found.

Class 101 almost doubled in size in 2017 and is continuing to expand into a strong national network to keep up with this demand. With each new opening the company moves closer to its 2020 goal of 100 franchises.

“Our franchisees have diverse backgrounds — former teachers, coaches and youth pastors,” says Tom Pabin, Founder and CEO, who launched the business 20 years ago.

“The need for college planning services continues to grow, as does the price tag of public and private college tuition. We know all the ins and outs of applying for scholarships and how to groom students to be more attractive when they start looking at schools and tuition aid.”
