Xello is an online, K-12 college, career and future readiness program that helps students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds cultivate their self-knowledge and skill building while exploring options for life after high school.

Founded in 1995 by a team of recent college graduates struggling to understand their career options, Xello builds solutions for students to become future-ready by equipping them with the knowledge, skills and insights to make informed decisions and build actionable plans.

Starting in elementary school, Xello sparks curiosity and excitement around exploring current interests and future options in developmentally appropriate ways. The reflective activities help students build social-emotional skills like communication, problem-solving, and self-advocacy. For older students, a series of assessments helps them dig deeper into their interests, aptitudes, and aspirations.

Students with access to college and career readiness programs in elementary school have been shown to have better self-knowledge, be more engaged in school, and be better prepared to plan for a successful future. Students spend over 1 million hours using the Xello software each academic year, with 20% of logins happening outside of school hours, making Xello 14 times more engaging than the average education software program.

The content is available in English and Spanish and optimized for mobile, tablet, and desktop. It can be accessed via single sign-in and incorporated into Google Classrooms and Google Drive, making it easy for students to log in at the 9,000-plus schools across North America that use Xello. For these reasons and more, Xello is a Cool Tool Award Winner for “Best Career Planning Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2024 from EdTech Digest. Learn more
