Palms Now College and Career Bound!

Naviance by Hobsons college and career readiness platform

Naviance helps middle school students identify their strengths and explore careers to increase college awareness and access. 

Students have the opportunity to complete tasks and participate in college access lessons within the platform.

To support self-discovery and career awareness, they can take personal interest surveys and explore the Road Trip Nation archives to learn from experts in multiple fields.

Students at Palms have completed the district required tasks for the last three years. The classes are taught to all grade levels and monitored by the College and Career Coach, Ms. Williams, through each student's elective or Science class.
