All students can access Naviance for career and college exploration purposes. Students will use Naviance as seniors to apply to colleges, request transcripts and letters of recommendation, and find scholarships.

  • Scholarships

Students should log-in to their Naviance account and go to Colleges ­čí¬ Scholarships and Money ­čí¬ Scholarship List to see a list of upcoming scholarship opportunities to apply for. 

We strongly encouraged our students to gather financial aid and scholarship information that is appropriate for their own circumstances and college application process. Students should not necessarily let the price of a particular college discourage them from applying for admission. Many financial aid programs exist to help you meet all college costs: tuition, fees, books, room and board, personal expenses, and transportation.

Each college will present a "financial aid package" and this is determined by financial needs calculated from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students and their parents should compare amounts and types of aid to determine which is the most beneficial to them. The FAFSA is available to complete online October 1stClick here for more information on FAFSA

The ACT is also often accepted for entrance and/or placement purposes by many colleges and universities. Some students prefer the ACT over the SAT because it includes a science section and the math is heavily geometry based. Visit the website and take a practice exam to see if this is the right test for you. Click on title to access the ACT website.
