Indianapolis-based ClearScholar, which provides app-based software to communicate with and engage students, recently announced deals with New Castle School of Trades in New Castle, Pennsylvania, and North American Trade Schools, a private vocational school in Baltimore. The two organizations are using ClearScholar’s platform “to attract new students and create deeper connections with prospective and current students,” said Jason Konesco, CEO of ClearScholar.

“As a former college president, I was constantly challenged in finding effective ways to connect with our students at the right time and in a personalized and meaningful way,” said Konesco, former president and CEO of Harrison College. “Many of these experiences went into the development of the ClearScholar platform.”

ClearScholar first launched its student-engagement and -safety platform at Butler University with the Butler App. The platform provides institutions “the ability to improve upon the sense of belonging, student communication, career readiness, student safety, resource utilization and student health through leveraging a student-facing mobile application,” Konesco said.

ClearScholar, founded in June 2016, announced a partnership in late February with Civitas Learning Inc., an Austin, Texas-based education-tech company with deals to supply its data-gathering and packaging platform to more than 325 colleges and universities. Those schools, Civitas officials said, have a combined enrollment of 8 million students, which is about one-third of all U.S. college students.•
