Welcome to SCOIR

For all 9th-12th Students- more info at Advising & Icecream

Grace Covenant Academy is pleased to share that we’ve implemented a new College & Career Readiness platform called Scoir (pronounced “score”). This system will streamline the process of requesting, processing, sending, and tracking the electronic delivery of all application-related documents. More importantly, it’s a much more enjoyable way for students and parents to engage in 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 discover for and identify colleges and careers that are a good fit with their personal and academic interests, which increases college retention.

Scoir also provides parents and guardians with useful financial calculators so you can determine the likely cost of attendance at different colleges and consider affordability when deciding where to apply. These features, along with more convenient scheduling and communication tools for high school counselors, 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 and the college and career readiness opportunities it provides.
