About naviance

What role does Naviance play in your application Process?

It allows the College Office and Your Guidance Counselor to know where you are applying so that we can send out your TRANSCRIPT, COUNSELOR LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION and SECONDARY SCHOOL REPORT to each of those schools on time!

It is a paperless process and saves you time and money on postage!

It is simple and easy and your college application is NOT COMPLETE until you follow the steps outlined in the “Application Instructions” for Naviance.
