The LDHS School Counseling Office uses Naviance to assist us and our students in managing the career planning and college application process. Naviance Student is a comprehensive website that students can use as a tool to help identify their interests, research careers and manage post-secondary planning and applications.
A student must log in to his/her personal account, where s/he can access and save information. Students can complete surveys and assessments and begin compiling lists of prospective careers and colleges. Our scholarship listings and college rep visit schedule are also included on the site.
If you don't know your user name and password, please contact your counselor for that information. In July 2018, Naviance will be updating their look and workflow. The appearance will be slightly different but the functioning will be nearly the same. The update is mobile friendly and easy to use.

Parental Permission for transcript requests: Transcript request form
***In order to release any personal student academic information, we MUST have a signed release form on file. If a student is under 18 years old, then we also require a parent signature. In order to streamline this process, we allow families to complete ONE release form for the senior year while students are accessing Naviance and perhaps processing multiple applications. If a student needs us to send a transcript to a specific person or organization, there is a space to indicate that also on the release form.
Students are encouraged to use Naviance as a career development tool where they can take interest and personality assessments and explore career fields. See our LINKS page for more career resources!
