Research careers, colleges, and majors
Xello contains a wealth of student-friendly content about careers, colleges, majors, and pathways. Robust search filters encourage students to think through factors important to them in considering careers (salary, demand, education level), schools (size, location, costs, application requirements), and programs of study (type, location).
Find scholarships and enrichment programs
Students will be able to search for local and national scholarships, store them in Xello, and work directly on the scholarship application in Xello. Scholarships can be added to their shortlist and students can keep track of their progress by updating the status of their scholarships to indicate that they’ve applied and if they’ve won.
BCPS will also add all local scholarships into the system so students can find and match with community-based opportunities..
Explore your interests, styles, personality, and intelligences
Xello helps students discover more about themselves by encouraging them to record and reflect on their strengths, skills, and interests.
Students can take a variety of research-based self-assessments:
- Personality Style Assessment
- Learning Style Assessment
- Skill Lab Assessment
- Career Matchmaker
These results provide recommendations for applying this knowledge to improve study skills, relationships, college selection, and career choices.
Build resumes and portfolios for job and college applications
With built-in guidance and tips, Xello’s resume builder helps middle and high school students of all abilities create a stand-out resume.
Set goals and develop personalized plans
With four primary components— visual planning tools where students can create plans and set goals, a high school course planner, and a college planning tool— students connect the pieces and move from exploration to planning and action.
Students preparing for college can track their application deadlines, requirements, and progress directly in Xello. Once an application is created, students can easily request transcripts or letters of recommendation.
