Naviance is a premier Web-based program that can assist students to chart a course toward achievement-whatever their starting point and end goals might be. The individualized system guides student’s steps toward their desired destinations. Students are inspired to become their best-using the innovative planning tools to chart a path towards academic, personal and career success.
Naviance Succeed reinforces the connection between today’s academic choices and tomorrow’s opportunities while encouraging students to consider every option. A visible path mapping their coursework to their goals keeps students engaged and focused. Students have the ability to build personalized success plans, discover more about individual learning styles and explore a multitude of career choices and college choices.
School counselors will use Naviance to assist students in every aspect of the planning process. Counselors, students and parents will have the ability to work collaboratively to plan courses, identify appropriate college choices, make application to colleges and insure all aspects of the career planning process are completed in a timely and thorough manner.
Students and parents have access to Naviance through a web site using their 5-digit permanent ID and their birth date. This component of Naviance is called Family Connection. Students can use this tool to have active participation in the exploration and planning of their career. With access, students can:
- Create an electronic portfolio
- Take inventories to increase self awareness
- Research career opportunities
- Research college options
- Research scholarship options
- Review and plan college representative visits
- Communicate with counselors
Parents have access to the portfolio that has been completed by their student and are then better prepared to support the student in the career planning process. The Family Connection was designed to serve the needs of the students and parents while at the same time giving the counselor a tool to insure the student has met his or her goals in planning for the future.
For more information about Family Connection and how students and parents can access this service, contact your child’s counselor.
