Naviance helps students develop academic plans that align with their interests and goals to keep them highly engaged in learning and invested in their own success. Schools and districts can simplify course planning and help students see how their plans today will impact their future. With Naviance Course Planner, a student’s Enlightium counselor can manage all course planning electronically. Students build course plans that meet graduation requirements and satisfy entrance requirements at colleges of interest.
Naviance allows counselors and advisors to electronically send student application-related forms, including transcripts, letters of recommendation, school profiles, and other resources to thousands of colleges and universities.
AchieveWORKS assessments support a personalized learning approach to helping students understand their personality type, learning styles, and unique intelligence. Together, the assessments provide a comprehensive profile of students' strengths and personal attributes that gives students the tools they need to take charge of their own learning.
Students build confidence by trying new things, pursuing what they love, and learning from their missteps in a safe environment. Naviance is that safe place by helping students focus on their strengths, reflect on their interests and strengths, and explore a wide variety of career options.
Gallup research has shown that students succeed when they focus on what they do best rather than trying to improve on weaknesses. That’s the premise behind Strengths Explorer®, the Gallup strengths-based assessment in Naviance.

Education, Career, and Life Readiness Lessons found in Naviance
While the majority of students today aspire to go continue their education beyond high school, many do not know the specific steps required to reach their goals. Additionally, many schools do not have easy-to-use resources to help develop an actionable plan for achieving students' goals.
The grade-specific Education, Career, and Life Readiness (ECLR) curriculum is a blended learning solution for students in grades 6–12 that helps them develop critical, non-cognitive skills and knowledge to prepare them for their next step after high school. It instills confidence, empowering students to persevere and achieve their long-term goals.
Please note that even if Enlightium students are interested in taking advantage of these excellent lessons, they may not be required to complete all 17 ECLR lessons. Review the expectations below:
Grades 6–8: students are only expected to complete the first five video lessons. Students who complete five or more lessons will receive a certificate at the end of the year.
Grades 9–12: students need to check their course planner for their custom schedule. If they see “ECLR” on the planner they will need to complete all the lessons and tests to meet graduation requirements. They will then receive high school credit for the ECLR lessons upon completion.
Enlightium Academy meets the national standard placed on schools to provide students with a basic understanding of Educational, Career, and Life Readiness. The lessons are designed to help students think about topics, like:
- What Makes Me Unique?
- My Career Goals
- Challenging Myself
- National Scholarship Search
- My Resume
- Leaving Home
