Class 101-Rochester
600 Fishers Station Drive
Suite 101
Victor, NY 14564
Class 101-Rochester has two objectives: First, we want to help every high school student go through the process of preparing for college. And second, we want to help all parents pay less for college!  Our goal is to see our students achieve theirs.
Class 101 guides you and your college-bound student through the complex steps leading to university admission. We custom-design the services for you and help make college more affordable.  Below is sample list of services we provide:
  • A realistic evaluation of college costs, and assistance in finding ways to effectively pay for college.
  • Practice-test sessions to reduce anxiety and maximize SAT and ACT scores.
  • Development of a list of colleges that best matches student and family preferences.
  • Assistance in putting together a student resumes and introduction materials.
  • Direction in brainstorming, proofreading, and coaching to improve essays.
  • Guidance in completing federal financial aid forms.
  • Access to information about scholarships.
  • Guided campus visits at numerous universities.
  • Support in maintaining high school grades.
  • Help in meeting application deadlines, scholarship, and other financial deadlines.
  • Assistance with athletic recruiting.

What is the purpose of Business and being a Business Owner?

In a word- Expansion.  Or in many words, it's your ability to do in the future what you can't do today, or to make possible what is now impossible.  This is how you are able to impact more people, more powerfully and more profitably every year. 

Yet for far too many businesses, one year looks exactly like the next: the same people, the same impact, and the same profitability (which in many cases means little to no profitability). 

But what if this time next year, you and your company expanded and became unrecognizable to you, your clients, and the people who depend on you?

Just Solutions Holds Webinar on Cybersecurity

Webinar by Just Solutions
Password Reuse: Your Employees Shortcut
and an Opening for the Bad Guys

Wednesday, August 15 at 12PM
Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this - and that's why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.
As IT experts in the greater Rochester area for the last 20 years, we know there are always a few employees who leave the door wide open for cyber-criminals, hackers and thieves. Maybe they're sloppy with their passwords. Perhaps they use a personal email for work or reuse their passwords. Whatever mistakes they make, they put your entire company at great risk.
Join Just Solutions & ID Agent on August 15th to learn more about the Dark Web and how to avoid a debilitating cyber-attack.
For more information or to register, visit
All attendees will receive a FREE Dark Web scan (normally $399)!
