Zinch.com is a one-stop shop for providing high school students with everything they need to succeed in their next phase of life – college. Setup much like Facebook, this online, social networking tool, allows students to connect directly with colleges in an engaging, low-pressure environment. With their extensive database of scholarships, any student can find plenty of opportunities to pay for college. Zinch’s free webinars help students and parents understand the in’s and out’s of higher education. To help students begin their journey towards college, Zinch’s college matching helps students find the right school for their educational needs. I have used Zinch with my AVID students and they have found it to be a great resource with an easy to navigate interface.
It all starts with a student building a profile. Building a complete profile allows a student to be matched with the right potential schools for them, the maximum amount of scholarships, and get connected with the best opportunities. When a student is trying to decide which college to go to, Zinch helps bridge the gap by providing all the data a student needs to make the best, informed decision.
In addition to college search tools, Zinch also provides many other great resources for students and parents. Zinch’s scholarship match system allows a student to be matched with scholarships in our database based on their GPA, interests, and other factors on their student profile. Zinch’s webinars cover subjects from preparing for the SAT to choosing the best fit college, among many other relevant subjects for future college students and their families. Zinch’s Blog, “More Than a Test Score” is the go to source for any and all topics that students are thinking about in preparation for the college journey.
Zinch is a free service that all high school students should take advantage of!
