We're  pleased to announce that we have implemented a new college guidance management system called Scoir (pronounced "score"). This new online system will streamline the process of requesting, processing, sending and tracking the electronic delivery of all application-related documents. Equally important, it makes the college search process easy and efficient and more likely to help you find a good fit. 

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.
