What is NAVIANCE! • Naviance is the online program that Brockport High School uses to communicate with colleges regarding college applications. • Students can also complete college and career searches using Naviance. • Students will request all transcripts through NAVIANCE and then follow up by completing the “Application Tracking Form” to be turned into Mrs. Rath in the Counseling Office. This will ensure that all necessary documentation is sent. • If you are applying to a Common Application school we strongly encourage you to apply using the Common Application vs. the SUNY or Private on-line applications.
