How to Get Started on Scoir as a Parent or Guardian

So, your student invited you to join them on Scoir or you've found Scoir yourself—let's talk about how to get started! ⭐

You may have been invited because your student found Scoir or uses the platform at school. You may also be interested in better supporting your student, so you found Scoir yourself.

You may be wondering:

What in the world is Scoir, anyway? And why is it spelled like that? And why did my student invite me to join?

Scoir helps students discover and apply to colleges, and helps parents and guardians support their students through the process.

This article outlines the features Scoir offers, what you need to know about each (many of which are newly enhanced!), and how to get started.
