Naviance Student allows parents and students to research colleges by comparing GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from our high school for students who have applied and been admitted in the past. In addition to general and admissions information, parents and students can access college information on academics, cost and financial aid, student body characteristics, extracurricular and athletic programs. A link to each college’s website is provided.
Students and parents may log onto their shared account where they will have access to the student’s personal academic information (GPA, SAT scores). Students may begin compiling their list of prospective colleges and compare their own credentials with recent Syosset applicants to those schools. With the ability to view the application outcomes (accepted, denied, waitlisted) for recent applications using GPA and SAT scores, students can gauge their chances of acceptance by comparing personal GPA/SAT statistics with those of successful applications.
This program also offers an in-depth career and personality profiler. Students will participate in small groups with their guidance counselor to complete these assessments to help them decide in which high school elective courses they may want to enroll. These programs offer a series of career assessments which also helps students discover multiple career options and plan their career paths based on general areas of interest, level of education, and training required to achieve their individual goals and objectives.
