SchooLinks is a dynamic application that helps HISD students create a roadmap for future college and career goals. Students log in, take fun quizzes about their skills, interests, and goals, then see the steps necessary to achieve their college and career aspirations.
As students search for and tag schools and careers, critical information about application and scholarship deadlines, costs, decision timelines, and documentation shows up in their account to keep them on track throughout their educational journey. SchooLinks gives parents, students, teachers, and support staff a clear view of a student’s goals and their progress toward meeting those goals. It's free for life and easy to use.
