    About the new Get Schooled

    What is Get Schooled?

    Get Schooled is a national nonprofit that helps young people get to college, find first jobs, and succeed in both. Our website has resources that will help you achieve your college and job goals, and our Textline team is ready to answer any questions you have about applying to college, finding a first job, how to succeed in high school, and more. Get Schooled is free, has no advertising, and never shares personal user data.

    What is the Textline?

    Our Textline team is ready to answer any questions you have about applying to college, finding a first job, how to succeed in high school, and more. To get started sign-up in your profile or text ‘HELLO’ to 33-55-77.

    What has changed about GetSchooled.com?

    Get Schooled just got a massive refresh! We have made many updates to backend security and stability, mobile optimization, and our user experience. We have brought the most up-to-date technology to help you on your educational and job journeys. The new site does this, and is based on best-practices and a ton of user research.

    Does this site have the same features?

    The new GetSchooled.com has the same rich library of content as the old site, with articles, videos, quizzes, discussion boards, and tools to help you on your path to college or a job. The site now also includes an incredible Job Search Tool to help you find that first entry-level job, plus easy ways to upload a college application essay or resume for review. We currently are not hosting games on the site.

    What happened to the badges?

    Badges do not exist in the new site, but all of their content does! Content is still grouped into categories (like FAFSA, College Applications, etc.), and you are free to explore however you want. Your progress and recognition will be based on overall engagement, not specific to content we select.

    What happened to the Rewards Store & User Points?

    The Rewards Store and user points have been retired, and we will soon unveil a new recognition program, where students will be recognized for how they engage with the site and how they further their own goals. The new recognition program will roll out in the first half of 2020 and continue to evolve over the coming year. Additionally, we have made many amazing new changes to the website to help you achieve your college and job goals.

    Where’s the search?

    We will continue to add content and refine the site in early 2020. Part of that work will include adding a search bar, allowing you to find content for any specific question you might have.

    What if I can’t find what I am looking for?

    We have hundreds of articles, quizzes and tools on Get Schooled, all designed to get you inspired and excited about your education – and to entertain you too! The site is designed to be personalized – the more you use the site, the more it knows you and gives you the content it thinks you need. That said, it doesn’t always know exactly what you need. If you can’t find what you are looking for, use the search function on the upper left side of your dashboard.
