Naviance is a web-based, data management system. This program is used by our counseling department to keep track of Corona del Mar High School student data including student GPAs, standardized test scores, college choices, college application information and a personality and career assessment.  
CdM students are registered and trained on the Naviance Family Connection.  
 
Every junior will go through the Naviance training in their first semester. In this training juniors become familiar with:·         
               
How to access their personal site·                    
How to organize their college planning and search process·                    
How to obtain general college information·                    
How to access specific college websites

Where to find scholarship information
 

How to analyze his/her GPA and test information in relation to former (anonymous) CDM students' data in determining prospective colleges that might be a good fit

      

The college data in Family Connection allows a student to search for the right individual college matches. Using Family Connection, students can store a personal game plan, and develop: 
  
A list of possible careers and majors
A resume
A list of colleges a student is considering
A list of colleges to which he/she is applying
College application tasks
Application results 
     
Any identifying information on Naviance is private and can only be accessed by the student, parents or the counseling department. Students can also be contacted by e-mail about college visits, deadlines, surveys and other pertinent college information from the counseling department.
