Bridge To College:

The Free Mobile App That Helps You Get Into and Pay For College.

Bridge To College is an intuitive mobile app that uses a comprehensive survey methodology to match students to their best collegiate options in 3 critical categories:

  • Academic Fit
  • Financial Capability
  • Social Fit​

 

 

There are three ways students and parents can use the Bridge to College App :

  • Browsing
  • Matching
  • Chatting

The App is free to use by students and families. Best of all, the solution relies on most of the same data that students already use to complete their college applications. This allows for a better, more accurate analysis of their needs, leading to superior results.

Students are majorly  underserved.

An incredible 20 million students apply to US colleges every year.  Bridge to College was created from a passion to ensure that young people have access to the education they want. 

Did you know?

  • Only 60% of students will graduate from college.  And that's in six years.
  • Only 11% of underserved college students will actually graduate from college. This is practically any student that doesn't have access to regular tutoring and counseling resources.
  • 70% of college graduates will leave school with crippling debt.

The average cost to prepare students for college is $20,000 - $60,000. This amount includes:

  • College prep courses (~ $4,199 - Kaplan)
  • Tutoring (often $100+ / hour)
  • College counseling (typically $10,000 / year)

*amounts are real costs for the average university student in California

86% of college students have access to 1-3 of these sources.  If you are trying to do this alone, you are underserved!

The first educational app to integrate social fit.

Unlike any other app, Bridge To College has identified a 3rd critical component to finding the right fit beyond just academic and financial compatibility – the right social fit.

Research indicates that there are 5 social factors involved in student retention:

How it works

Powered by AI & machine learning

Innovated in the heart of the startup world and created by an experienced teacher and data scientist, Bridge to College uses machine learning to match students to colleges that will graduate them on time.

The App was created by Vielka Hoy, a high school teacher with 20 years of experience in both public and private schools and a data scientist. The founder of  Vielka Hoy Consulting, Hoy has expertly matched more than 100 students with colleges over the past six years.

Bridge to College is deep and scalable, providing unprecedented potential in the years to come.

Good for colleges,
great for students
