Naviance: How to Log in Through

Naviance is a college and career platform used by DC Public Schools. Students in all grade levels can use the surveys, tools, and search features in Naviance to research colleges and explore careers. For seniors, Naviance is used to send school documents to support their college applications; these documents include your transcript, counselor letter, teacher recommendation letters, and school profile.

College Lists in Naviance: Which One to Use When?

There are two College lists in Naviance: “Colleges I’m Thinking About” and “Colleges I’m Applying To.”

The “Colleges I’m Thinking About” list is the best section for underclassmen and rising seniors to work in prior to the start of their senior year. Students can add as many colleges to this list as they like. After the school year starts, for all of the colleges on this list, you will receive an email notification if/when that college admissions counselor is visiting Jackson-Reed.

The “Colleges I’m Applying To” list is to be used by seniors after the start of their senior year, when a student is very sure about the list of colleges they would like to apply to and are ready to request that transcripts be sent.

College Research Tools

Use research tools in Naviance such as “SuperMatch” and “Find Your Fit” to research colleges to consider applying to. The “Scattergrams” feature shows application and acceptance data (student-reported) from previous classes of our school’s graduates.
