What is Naviance?

Theodore Roosevelt High School is excited to now be utilizing Naviance Family Connection, a phenomenal tool for college and career planning.  Naviance Family Connection has tools for students to take career interest inventories, explore careers, search for colleges, majors, and so much more.  It is a great one-stop shop to find out about topics such as scholarship opportunities, when various college representatives are visiting our school, and other important Guidance announcements.  It also, assists with the college application process and allows students to request their transcripts electronically.
