The college application process can be a daunting task for students and parents. Requirements and submission dates can change from year to year. Our business at College Planning 101 is to stay on top of the latest information and use that knowledge to help high school, college transfer, and individual education plan (IEP) students gain acceptance into colleges.
The essay is a critical part of the application process. It is so important that the essay is in the student’s voice and it can make or break a student’s ability to get into their college of choice. Here at College Planning 101, we know what the colleges are looking for in an essay. We help the student find their voice when writing their essay as well as review for errors or omissions.
We start the essays in August before senior year. This gives the students a head start on the college application process.

Having College Planning 101 as an asset through our school search has been nothing but amazing. Thanks to Stephanie and her coworkers, what should've been the most stressful and nerve racking part of growing up became a walk in the park. Sure, we had to play our part, but every step of the way and every question, no matter how simple, she was there. From the bottom of our hearts we really cannot thank them enough, and without a doubt recommend their services.
We started with the College Planning 101 staff in 2014 with my daughter being a Junior in High School. In every aspect that she needed guidance and help each one of them was there for her. It made things less stressful for us. As my daughter had questions throughout college and literally after getting her masters degree the team has still been there for her! Thank you College Planning 101 for being so professional, patient, courteous and also still there for her!!!
Stephanie has taken so much of the stress out of the process of not only finding and applying to colleges, but also figuring out payment and scholarship options. Without her help my dad and I would've been completely lost. Not only did she provide guidance before I even began applying to colleges, she also continues to be of aid every year when it came time to fill out the FAFSA and apply for financial aid. She quite literally has helped my dad and I save thousands of dollars throughout the entire process in realistic and doable ways. Paying for college can be extremely stressful, Stephanie has absolutely helped in making it less so.
