How Xello Works

One Program, Three Modules

Xello is a full K-12 College & Career Readiness program comprised of three interactive and age-appropriate modules.

k-2

Xello K-2

Starting in kindergarten through grade 2, Xello takes students on a fun and exciting adventure through Career Town. Here students learn about the importance of careers and what goes into choosing one — all while solving the mystery of the town's missing workers.
3-5

Xello 3-5

In grades 3 to 5 the Xello student experience evolves. Lessons and personalized activities are introduced. These engage students in building self-knowledge, exploring interest-related career options, setting achievable goals, and developing critical thinking skills.
6-12

Xello 6-12

In grades 6 to 12, assessments inspire deeper career exploration, academic planning is introduced, and goal setting becomes more sophisticated. In senior grades, work-based learning is introduced and postsecondary planning becomes a focused activity.

Assessment and Exploration

Interactive assessments help students understand their interests, skills, values, personality types and learning styles, and help match students to related careers.

Students then explore career portfolios, containing state and regional labor market data, and interviews with people working in these fields. This information helps students discover high-skill, high-wage, and in-demand careers they may otherwise have not known of.

What really jumped out to us about Xello was the student centered component of the program. It’s modern, up to date and so student friendly. Ease of access and usage was a big thing that stood out for us as well. And the fact that Xello embeds life skills components within lessons was a big win for our counselors.
