We understand the future can be daunting, whether you’re a student anxiously attempting to answer the questions of “What comes next?” and “How am I going to get there?” or a family member wanting to ensure your child has the best opportunities possible after high school. This is why BCPS is promoting Naviance, a new life-ready platform that helps the future seem more within our grasp.
Naviance is a student-friendly online system for grades 6-12 that allows students to discover their personal interests and strengths, explore careers and colleges, apply for colleges, build résumés, request recommendation letters, learn about local and state scholarships, and much more. This platform is a “one-stop shop” for BCPS students to explore, plan, and implement their future plans as they navigate through middle school and high school.
By implementing Naviance into our BCPS schools, students now have the opportunity to learn and explore with the guidance of school counselors, college/career coaches, and teachers -- as well as exploring independently. Naviance has a full curriculum prepared to provide students with self-discovery assessments and activities that can be utilized in school and on the student’s own time. In addition, it provides staff the opportunity to create customized surveys, gather information, and guide students into chosen pathways all in one place.
