The College Counseling department uses a software system called Naviance to manage the college admissions process. Naviance is a comprehensive and widely used college planning software program that will assist our students, their parents and their college counselor in different areas of the college application process. This includes the tracking of applications, supporting documents, transcripts, recommendations, and admissions contacts. In addition, students may explore career interests, set future goals and assess their academic standing in regards to college admission criteria at various schools.
Both parents and students are able to access Naviance. Students will have their registration code given to them by their counselor. Parents are able to obtain their registration code by contacting Mr. Fitzsimmons or Mr. Shoemaker in the counseling office.

There are two main functions of the Naviance program: college research and college-process organization.
Students can conduct searches with different factors and filters and they can learn about individual colleges’ majors and admission requirements. As an organizational tool, Naviance provides a site for deadlines and updates during the application process.
For their part, the students are expected to keep their Naviance accounts updated and application statuses current.
College counselors use Naviance to communicate to students, coordinate the multiple facets of the application process and submit supporting application documents on the students’ behalf.
All college visits to Jesuit Dallas are listed on Naviance, as well as outside information sessions held by colleges; this listing is updated frequently. A scholarship database is also found on Naviance as well as a document library with many articles, college-related information, and forms used by Presentation in the college-application process.
