Xello is a student platform centered on college and career readiness and success. Xello is an “award-winning program which puts the student at the center of their planning experience. Students document their journey as they build self-knowledge, explore post-secondary options, create plans, and continually reassess as they take in new knowledge, skills, and experiences. (2021)”

This is a brand new program in the district and the South-Western Career Academy will be utilizing the platform in various ways.
