SCOIR (pronounced "score")
All students! Our district uses SCOIR to help you develop and manage your post-high school college/career plans.
SCOIR will help you:
- Understand your talents and how they translate into a major
- Begin exploring and refining your college search based on personal and academic interests
- Keep you organized, while keeping your counselor and parents in the loop about your postsecondary plans
Check out this overview video about SCOIR.
Use your school google account to log-in to SCOIR and begin your planning today.
ZBTHS uses Parchment to send official transcripts to colleges or other after high school programs. The program will electronically send your transcript to the college/program you're applying to.
Class of 2021 students will recieve an email directly from Parchment in August 2020 to set up their Parchment account.
ZB will not be processing official transcripts for students in the Class of 2021 until August.
Transcripts that are needed for scholarship applications are generally paper transcripts that can be requested in Student Services or from your counselor.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
The FAFSA is the financial need application for most 2 year, 4 year, and career/vocational schools in the U.S. The FAFSA does not open until October 1 every year; deadlines vary by college/school.
Scholarships available in the fall of senior year mainly are from the colleges/schools themselves, based on admission status.
"Outside" scholarships (not from the colleges/schools) begin announcing in December/January. The scholarship announcements will be posted in Scoir with directions and application access.
