What is Naviance?

Naviance and the Family Connection (Naviance) is a web-based portfolio that helps you plan and organize your high school career, as well as keep track of your post-secondary application process.

The path to career readiness begins with self-discovery. Naviance allows students to learn about their strengths and reflect on their interests. Assessments provide suggestions on how to apply personality traits and learning styles in class, in addition to helping students discover career options based on their interests and strengths. Armed with this information, students can plan courses to complement their career pathway. At each grade level, counselors and students work together to explore and use the different features of Naviance.
