    Naviance Helps Middle School and High School Students Plan and Prepare for High School and Beyond

    Did you know 6th through 12th grade students have year-round access to Naviance, the district’s online tool to explore career paths, analyze their talents, and help stay on track to reach academic goals?

    “What do you want to do when you grow up?” This is a common question asked of students. Some students know exactly where they want to go and how they will get there. Others may be unsure and could use some support to chart out what’s next.

    Through Naviance, students can access tools to learn about study habits, financial planning, goal setting, and more. The tool also helps educators ensure their students have access to college and career planning.

    Naviance helps students with:

    Self-discovery: Naviance can be used to discover unique strengths and interests. Strengths Explorer in Naviance identifies a student’s top three strengths and includes strategies to apply them towards success in school, career, and life. Career Exploration: Students can use the knowledge of their strengths and interests and discover careers that align. The Career Cluster Finder survey in Naviance compiles a student’s favorite activities, personal qualities, and favorite school subjects and recommends career clusters that the student may find interesting.

    Academic Planning: Students and families can begin planning for high school coursework using Naviance, where they can track whether graduation requirements are met and aligned with identified goals.

    Post-Secondary Preparation: Students and families can begin exploring colleges of interest by viewing school profiles and tracking colleges where they would like to apply. Students can also send electronic transcripts to colleges during the application process. A database of local and national scholarships is also available for students to browse through. One million high school students received scholarships by finding and applying for them using Naviance.

    Parents may choose to opt out their students from using this tool during the opt out window. From now until September 20, 2019, Parent guardians, non-parent guardians, and students who are 18 years or older may document their decision to use or not use Naviance in the Source.
