Naviance is a great tool for students. This versatile computer site can help students figure out what career they’d like to pursue with the help of the “Cluster Finder” and “Career Interest Profiler” located under the “Career” tab. Below these is a link that leads to over 3,000 videos about “young people on road trips to interview leaders who have built their lives around their interests.” Naviance can also help students research colleges that they’re thinking of attending, and find colleges that fit them personally. This site helps with applying to colleges,  acquiring scholarships, and building resumes, as well.

On Naviance, there’s a planner for students to help keep track of upcoming assignments, tests, and events. The planner can also be used to help set goals and create a To-Do list. The planner is found under the “My Planner” tab. In the “Colleges” tab students can research colleges, and figure out scholarships and money situations. You can also find out college events that are going on. There are also places for colleges that students are looking at and colleges that students are applying to. Under the “College Research” area it shows stats of where students from multiple high schools are
applying to.

On the homepage of Naviance, the left-hand column has a set of links that lead to pretests, scholarships, parent portal, and more. On the right side of the homepage is an area for messages where students receive all types of messages from Ms. Sandy Anderson, the college and career adviser. These emails include information about upcoming workshops at Armijo and beyond, college visits, hiring events, as well as SAT and ACT tests/ pretests.

Ms. Anderson hopes to get students to be more familiar with Naviance. “We’re going to be using Naviance a lot more,” she said. “There’s a lot students don’t know about Naviance…it’s a great tool and I feel like maybe 5% of our population uses Naviance. We’re going to try to
change that.”
