Social media is a tool for life.

Why not teach students to use it wisely?

That’s what we help you do - teach high school and college students essential social media networking, reputation management, and digital literacy skills.

Students will learn how an engaged social media presence that highlights their activities, community and family service, achievements, and interests can help with college and grad school admissions, scholarships, internships, and future employment.

Is it a good thing if Harvard and Dartmouth are following me on Twitter?
I have extensively reviewed the courseware you have set up and am quite impressed. The level of engagement you guys provide is excellent, you were right, this is how today’s generation wants to learn. It’s great to see it executed so well.

Students use it to socialize with friends. 

Why not inspire them to socialize with the world?


Social Assurity coaches students to enlarge the scope of their social circles – to maximize future academic and professional opportunities.

While almost everyone uses social media to spread news amongst existing friends, one of its greatest, often untapped, powers is to showcase a student’s potential for college, grad school, scholarships, employment, internships, and with those who share their interests. That's called Digital Leadership.  

By using social media properly, students may discover that the world is a wider place than they ever imagined.

I really like the courseware you created and it is very easy to navigate. Our kids deserve the very best opportunities and you have added a depth to the college application process that I find inspiring. I completely believe in what you are doing and applaud you!

Don’t hide from your past.

Create your future.



The fact is, colleges and employers simply don’t care if they find pictures of you having fun on the internet. But they do care that the claims on your application reflect the realities of who you truly are. 

Conveying your true interests and commitments means more than building a boilerplate resumé or writing a 500-word college essay. That’s where social media excels, offering a deeper dive into your true self and character than any shortlist of credits and accomplishments. For the serious student, having a public and reflective digital presence is imperative.

I’d been warned to keep personal pages private, to avoid casual judgments of my persona based on years of teenage posting. Now, after Social Assurity, it makes much more sense to use social media to exemplify my goals, values, passions, strengths, and interests, whether personal or professional.
