In grade 9, through our 9th Grade Academy Guidance Lessons, students will be introduced to Naviance, a college and career planning program. Through Naviance, students will register for individual accounts which they will have access to for the next four years. They will also complete a Learning Style Inventory and Career Interest Profiler as part of their Naviance tasks. Both exercises will assist students in discovering which learning environment best suits their own personalized needs, and which career clusters may match their interests. Additionally, students will participate in a mock college admissions exercise during which they will analyze transcripts and resumes of students as if they were college admissions officers. Through this exercise, students gain an understanding of college admission factors such as: GPA, rank, extra-curricular activities and participation in rigorous coursework.
