The SAO easily handles multi-household families, letting schools know whom to contact and where to send their materials.
Help schools get to know your child by submitting interests and academic or personal achievements. Even upload multimedia links such as YouTube channels or blog pages to highlight athletic, art, or writing abilities.
Add parent statements, student essays, recommendations, and transcripts once and seamlessly submit them to all schools to which you apply. School-specific instructions and supplemental forms are clearly indicated.
Make recommendation requests and track submissions through the SAO. Likewise, request transcripts from school administrators by officially signing release forms through the system.
Track individual school requirements for the SSAT and the Character Skills Snapshot, and individually release scores and results to each school.
Financial aid applications are managed separately through each school; however, you indicate whether your family intends to apply for tuition assistance on the SAO.
Track individual school deadlines and the completion of all SAO applications through one convenient dashboard!
Participating schools give SAO submissions equal consideration as those submitted through the school’s website. In many cases, schools have integrated the SAO with their website's application.
All school application fees are charged through the SAO, and the SAO processing fee is only $10 per application. Families that receive an application fee waiver from the school won’t incur either charge.
