Naviance

Naviance is a college and career readiness platform that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals.

The comprehensive college and career readiness solution empowers students and families to connect learning and life and provides schools and districts with the information they need to help students prepare for life after high school. It also allows students to create a plan for their futures by helping them discover their individual strengths and learning styles and explore college and career options based on their results.
 
While the vast majority of students today aspire to go on to college, few know what it takes to optimize their potential and reach their goals. The Naviance College and Career Readiness Curriculum is a blended learning solution for students in grades 6-12 that helps them develop critical non-cognitive skills and college knowledge, and instills confidence so that they’ll persevere to reach their long-term college and career goals.
 

Family Connection

Whitney High School’s Family Connection site is designed to assist our students with college and career planning. Utilizing the tools in the tabs above will help you to set future goals for yourself, build a professional resume that can help you to get a job or assist your teachers in writing your letters of recommendation, identify careers of interest based on questionnaires and personality surveys, and search for colleges that will enhance your education and allow you to achieve your goals.

We encourage students to explore their career goals, find the best fit in a college or university, and explore college visits and enrichment programs that can help them to figure out where they want to be and what they want to do come graduation year.

Colleges

 
 SuperMatch college search: Select from a number of criteria, indicate its level of importance and quickly get a response based on those criteria, including an explanation of the results.
 
College Lookup: Start here to research a specific college.
 
Colleges I’m Thinking About list: Students can add colleges directly to the Colleges I’m Thinking About list or students can use some of the college research tools like SuperMatch and College Search to identify some colleges that might be a good fit. During senior year, students will be able to convert the colleges that you have decided to apply to from your "Colleges I’m thinking about" list to your "Colleges I’m applying to" list.
 
Scattergrams: These are two-dimensional graphs with the intersection of values on the x- and y-axis represented as individual data points. In Naviance, a scattergram shows GPA on the x-axis and SAT, ACT or other standardized test scores on the y-axis. This tool will allow you to use historical GPA and test score information about students from WHS and their college applications to match you with colleges that you may want to consider adding to your list. *This is a work in progress as data is collected each year at graduation.
 
Scholarship List & Applications: This list contains scholarships or financial aid awards that may be relevant for you. Click specific scholarship to view more information or sort by name, category, deadline or maximum award. All scholarships to "My List" to track application progress.

Careers

 
 Careers and Clusters: Career clusters are a way of grouping careers with common features and skills. Careers grouped into the same cluster typically require similar education and training. Exploring clusters can be a useful way to find a good career match, especially if you have general areas of interest but are not sure what specific careers match those interests. Career clusters can also help you better understand how your coursework in school can prepare you for certain types of careers.
 
Career Interest Profiler: The Career Interest Profiler is an online career interest assessment for students based on Holland's interest codes.
 
Roadtrip Nation content: The Roadtrip Nation interview archive is a digital career exploration tool that enables students to discover new pathways, interests, and ambitions. The archive includes more than 3,500 full-length video interviews chronicling the diverse personal stories of leaders who have turned their interests into their life’s work.

My Planner

 
 Set Goals: In your success plan, goals can be anything! You can set a goal to make the honor roll or to become an astronaut or anything else you can think of.  It's a good idea when you're making a goal to make it something you'll need to work toward. Then, use the "next steps" to break it down into smaller parts like "getting an A in math."
 
To Do List: To-dos are actions you need to complete. You can relate them to a goal you make or a task that your school has assigned to you. They can also be on their own, which is a good way to keep track of work you need to do or things coming up on your calendar.
 
Task Assigned: Tasks are assigned to you by your school. They can be pretty important (some of them can be required to graduate!), so make sure to go through them and make sure you're on track.
