We utilize Naviance, a powerful tool that enhances our students’ college planning. Every student receives an account, which allows them to:

  • Create a resume, complete on-line surveys, and manage deadlines for decisions about colleges and careers.
  • Research colleges and build a list of possibilities relevant to each student's goals.
  • Access a wealth of college information. Compare GPA, SAT scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from our school to see students who have applied and been admitted in the past.
  • Find out which colleges are visiting Sonoma Academy when and sign up to attend those sessions.

We invite you to log in to Naviance as a guest to see a sample of its functions.
