San Ramon Valley High School

Naviance Overview

 

Naviance/Family Connection is a web-based tool designed especially for students to help make decisions about colleges and careers.  Students will use Naviance Student to research college and career options, as it also provides up-to-date information that is specific to our school. Family Connection allows us to share information with parents and students about up-coming college visits, summer enrichment, scholarships, meetings, news, and events, as well as other web resources for college and career information.

 

If you are having difficulty signing in to Naviance, please email Mrs. Schratz or Mrs. Wise for a reset and/or stop into the C&CC.  jschratz@srvusd.net or swise@srvusd.net 

 

 

Within the Naviance, students will find access to the following:

 

Colleges: College research tools, specific college data for all college/universities, scatter grams with SRVHS data points can be found here. Once a student is a Sophomore, their 10-12 (A-G) gpa will be populated in their Naviance Student account.  In addition, ACT/SAT scores will populate in Naviance Student (or can be added manually by the student). These data points allow students to easily track their gpa/scores in relation to college data presented (please note, colleges do not see this information). 

 

Scholarship information can also be found on this tab for both local and national scholarships offered. See the National Scholarship List option for scholarships that come through the C&CC which we post. Many of these are more local organizations looking to provide SRVHS students with scholarships. 

 

Seniors will see additional information that includes tabs for requesting teacher letters of recommendations, transcripts and colleges I'm applying to features.  On the home page of Naviance Student, Seniors will also see a "document library" link where they can access information our Counselors need in order to write letters of recommendation. The documents in this link have been updated for the 2018-19 school year.

 

Sign up to attend an admission rep presentation in C&CC: All students will see information on Upcoming College Visits at SRVHS. This is where students may 'sign up' to attend an onsite college visit by an admission officer. During the fall we host over 100+ visits. 

 

Careers: Students can access a variety of career exploration tools (some of which they will participate in at SRVHS) as well as Roadtrip Nation which features over 3,500 video interviews for industry leaders. 

 

About Me: Students can access additional career and personal exploration tools (some of which they will participate in at SRVHS) in addition to finding a RESUME builder. We encourage students to begin using the resume builder as early as freshman year. This is a feature that allows them to input awards, recognition, employment, extracurricular activities for their time here at SRVHS.  Many students will need to create an 'activities resume' when applying for college their senior year. It is helpful if they have been gathering this information along the way!

 

PARENTS:  You have your own log in credentials (and your student has his/hers).  If you need help logging in, please email Jill Schratz, jschratz@srvusd.net with your student's name and we will reset your access (including during the summer as I will be checking email periodically).  If you have more than one student at SRV, you should be able to view each student's portal from your same log in.  Please let me know the names/grades of all of your SRVHS students when you contact me so that I can ensure you have access.  

 

UPDATES!
