Naviance Curriculum

Naviance Curriculum Overview

The Naviance College and Career Readiness Curriculum is a blended learning solution for students in grades 6 to 12 that aids in developing important non-cognitive skills and college knowledge. It gives students confidence so they will persevere to accomplish their long-term academic and professional goals.

Contact your Naviance representative for more information on curriculum lessons for grades K - 5.

The online, self-paced lessons in the Naviance Curriculum, created in partnership with Roadtrip Nation, cover a wide range of themes to ensure that students have the knowledge they need to be ready for the transition from middle school to high school and from high school to beyond. Lesson themes include:

  • Self-Discovery
  • Success Skills
  • Support Network
  • Career Planning
  • College Planning
  • Financial Planning
Some Curriculum lessons include videos hosted by Vimeo. If your school's network does not allow access to, ask your IT staff to whitelist the Vimeo video links. Download the whitelist document from the Naviance Knowledge Base in the PowerSchool Community. Select PowerSchool Community from the Get Help menu in Naviance to access the Community.
