What is SchooLinks? 

SchooLinks is a dynamic application that helps HISD students create a roadmap for future college and career goals. It’s free for life and easy to use. Students log in, take fun quizzes about their skills, interests, and goals, then see the steps necessary to achieve their college and career aspirations.

  • Would You Rather: Matching careers to your favorite hobbies. 
  • Top Skills: Match careers to your skills and interests. 
  • Learning Style: Take this assessment to see how you learn best to set yourself up for future success. 
  • Student Focus: Analyze different colleges and programs you are interested in. 
  • Discover Your Campus Lifestyle: Take this assessment to determine what type of campus is best for you. 

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.
