College Research

Here are some helpful resources to help you find a school that is right for you! 

School Searching

Here are some really great websites that provides you helpful information about colleges and universities, and even match you with scholarships! 

This website gives each college a “report card” and an overall grade. It also gives grades for professors, dorms, safety and other concerns. 

An awesome college search engine. Take their college search quiz, and sign up for their scholarships!

A college search engine with tools and resources for every student. Use their “fit score” to find out if a college is right for you and estimage your chances of getting accepted into a school by entering your grades and test scores!

Find colleges, test scores, locations, majors, support services and diversities. Read their tips about financial aid! (College Board is also used for your SAT scores.)
