Welcome to the College Counseling office at Tipton-Rosemark Academy. I am excited to work with our high school students and parents as they navigate the college search, application and admissions process. The entire process is daunting at best and overwhelming for many. My goal as counselor is to be available to students and parents and alleviate some of the stress associated with these important life decisions. I strive to remain abreast of the ever-changing policies, strategies, and trends that parents and students don’t always have the time or resources to research.

We are 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.
