Description

We believe students are more than their test scores and colleges are more than their rankings. Higher education and career readiness is the gateway to expanded opportunities for advancement, yet far too many high school students fail to realize those opportunities. We set out to fix a flawed college and career readiness process.

You'll hear from a variety of Scoir team members who will host conversations with industry experts and thought leaders. Join us as we share advice from students, supporters, counselors, colleges, and more!
