College and Career Info

  • The mission of Naviance is to assure that students are ably prepared for opportunities upon graduation. Specifically, the Center prepares students for college and/or for the world of work. With professional assistance from the student's guidance counselor each Somerset County graduate will find either a position in a career field or placement in the college of his/her choice.


                    Our college/career advising process includes the following steps:

    -          Students become aware of their career or college preferences through various career inventories and tests;

    -          Students discover their individual core themes that will assist them in making decisions about career opportunities and/or college placement;

    -          Students determine, with parent and counselor assistance, the particular career path or college to attend utilizing such computerized packages as “Zinch” and/or “Naviance”;

    -          Other activities include a robust college visitation program, computers to assist in locating college and career opportunities, SAT/ACT test preparation services, assistance with job search strategies, resume writing and interviewing techniques, a college and career library and guidance with completing and mailing of all employment and/or college applications.
