Naviance (College and Career Planning)
WHAT IS NAVIANCE?
Naviance is a web-based program enabling self-discovery, career exploration, academic planning, and college preparation. This system is available to 6th-12th grade students in the Simi Valley Unified School District. In order to help prepare students for college and career goals, each year, Counselors and Teachers cover career and/or college lessons accompanied by grade-level-specific Naviance Activities. We encourage students and families to explore this incredible resource. Please review the Naviance Activities links below for more details.
