Whether you're a freshman or senior, there's no better time to start thinking about the future than NOW! Thinking about the future doesn't mean that you have to know every detail of your post-high school plan. It might just mean looking at some career options that seem exciting and taking classes that give you an idea of how that career works. Some of you will absolutely know where you want to go and have a good idea of what you want to study. We'd love to have you come down and visit us in the counseling office to discuss college and career goals.

The BASA Counseling office hopes to cultivate strong relationships with each student and family in order to find the optimal post secondary fit. Over the course of four years, our office provides tailored services to assist you in exploring options and making informed decisions about life after high school. Below is more information about the new college guidance management system, SCOIR.


Barrow Arts and Science Academy is pleased to announce we have implemented a new college guidance management system called Scoir (pronounced "score"). This new, modern online system will streamline the process of requesting, processing, sending and tracking the electronic delivery of all application-related documents.

More importantly, it's much more helpful for students and parents during 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 identify colleges that are a good fit with their personal and academic interests, which increases college retention. Scoir also provides parents with useful financial calculators so you can determine the likely cost of attendance at different colleges and consider the affordability when deciding where to apply. These features, along with more convenient scheduling and communication tools, 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 opportunities it provides.
