Approved College and Career Planning Systems

  • Description: Naviance is a comprehensive college, career and life readiness (CCLR) platform that helps middle and high school students discover their strengths, explore college and career interests, create actionable goals and find their best-fit path after high school. School personnel have access to robust reporting and analytic insights that help measure student outcomes. They will have visibility to student activities and can easily facilitate the college application process through electronic document submission. Naviance is designed around our CCLR framework, a research-backed model outlining six competencies (Social Emotional Learning, Interpersonal Skills, Academic Skills, Career Knowledge, College Knowledge, and Transition Skills) that students in grades 6-12 must achieve to become college, career and life ready. Each competency will outline themes and objectives to further define success, as well as grade-specific activities to achieve each of the objectives.
