College & Career Planning Guidance System (SCOIR) 

Francis Howell School District is pleased to introduce a new college & career planning guidance system called SCOIR (pronounced “Score”) to help you prepare for and navigate the college search, selection and application process. SCOIR also has financial tools for parents to calculate an accurate cost of attendance that will help you decide whether to apply. Additionally, SCOIR has partnered with Pymetrics, a neuroscience software company measuring traits and behaviors, to bring your students Career Interest. The best part? Their analysis is measured via game playing...not questionnaires. When the games are completed your students will have a better understanding of their inherent traits and characteristics, how those apply to different career opportunities, and which fields of study relate to those careers.  Juniors & Seniors should have received their SCOIR registration codes at schedule pick up but if they still need their code, please contact Mrs. Prestidge, the College & Career Counselor, at brooke.prestidge@fhsdschools.org. Freshman & Sophomores will be activating their accounts 2nd semester.

Parent Accounts on SCOIR:

Once your student “invites” you to their SCOIR account (by entering your email), you will be able to view their profiles, see their college list, conduct your own college searches, and suggest colleges for your student to consider.  SCOIR also provides parents with financial tools so that you can get a better sense of the cost of attendance at various colleges during the selection process.

 

Here are some brief videos below to help you become familiar with how to use SCOIR.
