College and Career Readiness Programs

Indigo offers a comprehensive career readiness system for individualized college and career planning programs focusing on student strengths and technology. The Indigo assessment and Indigo online courses fulfill most state requirements, including ICAP and ECAP. 


Indigo aims to support all students in finding their strengths so they can choose career paths and post-secondary opportunities that match their full potential. Indigo-based college and career readiness programs promote a post-secondary mindset school-wide and supports strategic planning that helps students become future ready.

In addition to college and career readiness programs, Indigo works with middle schools, high schools and districts across the country to deliver the industry’s first Social Emotional Learning (SEL) platform based on self-awareness and finding a fulfilling future. 


Indigo’s assessment and best practices align with CASEL’s model for school-wide social emotional health. The Indigo SEL assessment is a Tier 1 Universal Basic Screener for districts using the MTSS framework. The data gained from Indigo’s college and career readiness system is invaluable for enhancing and measuring the effectiveness for any comprehensive SEL initiative your school is implementing.


Colleges and universities across the country are focused on student success. Students who are in the right major and feel connected to their peers and institutions are more likely to stay engaged and graduate. 

Indigo can provide critical data not available anywhere else that can show what individual factors are impacting students leaving your programs. Because every school and program is different, our attrition models are custom to each major and are up to 80% predictive. Moreover, advisors, faculty, and student success personnel will have the data available at their fingertips to quickly connect with each student and help them succeed!


Indigo validates each student for who they are and meets them where they are regardless of their academic performance, leveling the playing field for every student to succeed. Over 50% of Indigo schools are Title 1 and the assessment is EEOC and OFFCP compliant, proven to be free of bias and adverse impact for underrepresented populations.

Some students may feel their self-worth is based on their grades, standardized test scores, or other performance measurements. Indigo strives to help each student discover their value and the value of their peers. Using the Indigo assessment results, college and career readiness programs, counselors, and instructors can highlight student strengths, behaviors, and motivators. When paired with the Indigo dashboard, this data can be used to create diverse teams so students of different backgrounds, strengths, and personalities can work and support each other.

Team Building

Building high performing teams is the future of work. The best schools know this and invest in team building for their teaching staff as well as administration. The Indigo dashboard can automatically create high-performing teams of students or members with the touch of a button to use in your classrooms, work groups, or clubs (especially helpful for schools implementing project-based learning).

You can view the strengths and blind-spots of each team from Indigo’s career readiness system as well as participate in Indigo-led professional development that provide context and facilitation to build team cohesiveness.

Indigo has worked with transitioning military personnel through our many higher education partners. We also work with the US Naval Academy and the Stockdale Fellows Leadership Program. Many veterans’ organizations utilize Indigo’s career readiness program to help transitioning military personnel discover strengths, career paths, and more. This segment of our work is growing with a unique, military-specific IndigoDiscover dashboard platform and veteran’s program, launched in 2020.
