Naviance, an interactive web-based system is used to assist students formulate career paths, complete interest inventories, conduct career planning, and complete college planning. This includes college searches and data comparison, and keeping in mind that attending college is not a race, but a process of fit. Personally working with the student’s assigned school counselor, the focus at the freshmen and sophomore level is to explore personal strengths and identify interests. Educational and career information is shared with students to assist them in the career planning process in order to develop post-secondary plans and to work towards life-long goals. Working directly with the individual, school counselors help students understand the relationship of academics to work and life. Juniors and seniors work closely with their school counselor to assist in the choice making process, to select post-secondary placements and finalize their goal-oriented plans.
