CollegePrep 101-Home To All Your College Preparation Needs

I think kids coming into college should know what to expect, considering I had no clue and no one ever told me how hard and stressful it would actually be. It would have been nice to have had a heads up.” – Raven, College Freshman


This statement from a college freshman perfectly sums up the reason CollegePrep-101 was created in 1997 – to help students prepare for and succeed in college.  We believe the more you know about what to expect when you get to college, the better prepared you’ll be to deal with it, whatever it is.

Blog sitesTeensGot Cents:TeensGot Cents was created by Eva Baker after she listened to Dave Ramsey with her mom. Oh, and by the way, she was only 16 when she started her blog. Her goal is to inspire other teens to make savvy financial choices early on in life, and that being smart about your money can be fun as well. On her site, you will find resources for high school students and college bound teens – from saving for college, to finding volunteer work to beef up your college applications, to fun ways to save money.
