Naviance/Family Connection is a multi-faceted resource that the guidance department uses for a multitude of lessons in both the college process as well as personal growth for our students. The guidance department uses this tool to go into the classroom and educate students on how to use Naviance, for instance, we will go in and explain how Naviance can be used as a one stop shop when researching different colleges and universities. In one search, a student can find the average ACT and GPA for admittance, the cost, the enrollment, the areas of studies offered, etc. Naviance is also the way students will request that their transcripts be sent to colleges.
There is no doubt that Naviance has a plethora of information and tools to help our students narrow down their choices for colleges, but it also supplies our students with different inventories that will help them explore themselves personally. One such inventory that we use is the interests inventory. Once completed, this inventory supplies us and our students with feedback on work related fields based off of each students responses. From that point forward, students can explore specific careers by seeing the projected growth for each career as well as the average salary, education needed, and a much more specific description of the day by day tasks for each profession.
