College Applications


Shows 4 steps:  Apply; Set Up Scoir; File Financial Aid; Send Scores

Seniors in the Class of 2024:  we now use Scoir instead of Naviance. 

All students applying to college (4-year or 2-year) will use Scoir as their application manager.

Scoir is how we know:

  • where you are applying;
  • when your deadlines are;
  • what materials you need;
  • how we can help you

AND, most importantly Scoir is HOW we actually send your materials, so if you do not set it up, we cannot support your applications and send school materials for you. 

To access Scoir, go to Classlink and look for the Scoir tile. 

Access resources about each part of the process below and view the slideshows on the right of this page.
