Help Students Make Informed Post-Secondary Decisions

High school professionals, such as counselors and superintendents, can access the platform to see aggregated, real-time dashboards and reports and provide insight about students’ plans, aspirations, and gaps.

What’s Inside myOptions Encourage

Eduventures® Research Library and Educator Resources

The Eduventures Research Library provides research, analysis, and thought leadership on relevant topics, such as Student Mindsets™ in the post-secondary planning process. The Research Library is home to our insights, best practices, and top publications. This is a collection of cutting edge research with recommendations on how to apply it within school counseling practices.

Interactive Dashboards and Reporting

You and your team can visualize college match and scholarship reports for each participating student. You can also see trends and summary reports on the college and career interests at the student level, school level, and district level with a comparison to national trends.

Mentoring and Progress Monitoring

Through the myOptions student website and iOS app, students can invite mentors to connect with them. Their college planning profiles contain a checklist that provides suggested tasks based on their grade levels and semesters. Students can also build their college application lists and report the application status for each school on their list. Within myOptions Encourage, you can view their progress on these tasks, college applications status, and send messages to students.

College Application Management

On the myOptions student website and iOS app, students can request their transcripts and other supporting documents be sent to complete their college applications. You can fulfill this request directly in myOptions Encourage by sending transcripts and other supporting documents directly to colleges on behalf of the students through our secure portal.
