      • Naviance is only accessible via an ACPS student account.
      • Naviance is the link between students/their college application(s), their school counselor, and all the colleges to which they are applying!
      • Parents & students should watch the “Naviance Student Tour & Overview” to learn how to navigate Naviance & review key features.
    • College Application Tools: Checklists, guides, and important links (especially the link "Information Specifically For Titan Seniors")
