Preparing Students for Post-Secondary Success

DSC 0643 - Copy

Every student has the potential for post-secondary success. In alignment with the Stamford Public Education Foundation’s focus on preparing students for college and/or career training, a fourth year of funding from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation has allowed SPEF to continue to work with the Stamford Public Schools to increase the use of Naviance Family Connection throughout the district to inspire and guide students towards career and college readiness.

Used in 4,200 schools by 100,000 educators in 72 countries, Naviance Family Connection allows Stamford’s high school and middle school students, their parents and guidance counselors to investigate, research, track and plan for the college admission process. Students are encouraged to complete grade-specific milestones to create resumes, complete online surveys, compare schools, sign up for college visits, manage deadlines and apply for local, state and national scholarships.

Because Naviance maps the GPA and SAT scores of each student against the entry level requirements of the colleges he or she is considering, students are able to assess the likelihood of being accepted by the colleges they wish to attend.
