  • Naviance is a comprehensive college- and career-readiness solution for middle and high school students that helps align student strengths and interest to post-secondary goals. Naviance connects learning and life by helping students discover their individual strengths and learning styles while exploring college and career options based on their results.

    Dallas ISD has made Naviance, a self-discovery and college interest and application tool, available to students, parents and district campus staff with the goal of enhancing our students’ ability to make an informed decision about choosing an endorsement, one of five areas of study students can pursue in high school to help guide their college and career experiences.

    Naviance provides early exploration of student college and career interests while helping inform academic readiness starting in 6th grade. Schools are also able to measure readiness at each grade level, 6-12, through various assessments geared towards helping students find their strengths, information about the college application process, academic preparedness and financial aid.
