We are proud to announce that starting in the upcoming 2018-2019 school year our DHS students will be introduced to and begin utilizing the Naviance program.
Naviance is a comprehensive college and career readiness solution that helps schools align student strengths and interests to postsecondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life.
This program will allow our students to create a personalized plan that helps them make the right decisions throughout their academic journey by helping them, their families, and our staff create course plans that not only match our students’ interests but also fulfill graduation requirements and align with their goals for college and beyond.
Connecting our students' interests to their potential career paths early will ensures active participation in their own academic success and opens their eyes to a bevy of career opportunities they may never have considered or known about. The career planning tools in Naviance will allow students to understand how their strengths, goals, skills, and interests can lead them to exciting careers.
Led by our college counseling team of Mr. Daniel Mehrabian and Mrs. Diane Bidna our goal with using Naviance is to centralize and mainstream the college application process and ensure that all of the parties involved, including students, parents, school staff and universities, are in the loop. Both our counselors as well as the administration are excited that AGBU MDS will be joining the ranks of the most distinguished high schools in Southern California with respect to utilizing the Naviance system in the college application process.
“AGBU students will now be much more organized and gain peace of mind knowing that the diverse variables entailed in the application process will be done in an efficient and transparent manner,” said Mr. Mehrabian who has previously used Naviance to help his students achieve their goals and get into their desired schools.
Here at AGBU MDS we are always looking for the best ways to help our students succeed and we are certain that Naviance will be one of those ways.
To formally introduce students and parents to Naviance an information session will be scheduled for a later date.
