SCOIR is a web-based service designed especially for students and parents. The program tracks and analyzes data about college and career plans to provide up-to-date information that is specific to Frederica Academy.
The SCOIR search function helps identify schools students might be interested in based on a number of search parameters including location, academic interests, hobbies, etc. The program’s career search and assessment tools may help broaden knowledge of various careers and educational opportunities available. Students are encouraged to utilize résumé building features, which will allow them to keep track of their work, community service, extracurricular activities, and honors and awards.
SCOIR also curates social media and testimonials of students on campus to provide a glimpse into student life. Students are able to curate their own “board”, filled with colleges and hashtags they are interested in following.
The SCOIR mobile app enables students to search and manage their profile through their phone. Students and families will be able to view historical data of college admissions rates and success of previous Frederica Academy students, which is helpful in determining the likelihood of admissions.
SCOIR provides an interface for parents so that they may become a part of the search process. Financial calculators are available to help assess and compare the costs of colleges, and parents can even recommend schools that they think their student may be interested in. The platform also allows counselors and teachers to send recommendations, transcripts and additional documents efficiently.
