Attention Seniors

Simi Valley Unified School District uses Naviance to submit documents electronically to colleges. These documents include School Reports, Letters of Recommendation, and Transcripts. Seniors need to make sure the colleges they are applying to are listed in Naviance and their list is updated to reflect their most current selection of schools.

What is Naviance?

Naviance is a web-based program for academic planning, college and career research. This system is available to 6th-12th grade students in the Simi Valley Unified School District. Naviance helps students and families connect what students do in the classroom to their life goals, including finding colleges and careers based on their personal skills and areas of interests. Naviance provides a single location for school and district administrators to engage students and families, improve college and career planning, and measure student outcomes. We encourage parents, guardians, and family members to explore the wealth of information contained in this incredible resource.
