    Aspen High School is pleased to announce that we have implemented a new college guidance management system called SCOIR (an Irish Gaelic verb that means to transition from one phase to another and which is pronounced "score"). 

    This new, modern online system (which replaces Naviance) will streamline the process of requesting, processing, sending and tracking the electronic delivery of all application-related documents.

    More importantly, it's much more helpful for students and parents during the college search and selection process. On SCOIR, colleges come to life through pictures, videos, and links that highlight active student clubs and organizations. This better enables students to identify colleges that are a good fit with their personal and academic interests, which increases college retention. SCOIR also provides parents with useful financial calculators so you can determine the likely cost of attendance at different colleges and consider the affordability when deciding where to apply.

    These features, along with more convenient scheduling and communication tools, will help keep everyone informed and engaged throughout the college application process. SCOIR exists to help more students achieve more positive outcomes, and we're excited that our students have access to this system the opportunities it provides.  

    The Class of 2022 and their parents will be registered with SCOIR at the First Junior & Parent Evening Meeting in September. Students and parents may contact Susanne Morrison, with questions about registering with SCOIR.

     

    If you have not yet registered an account with SCOIR, please email Susanne for an invitation and click on the directions below.
