Pinkerton Academy seniors gain a new software tool to apply to college
A new software program known as Naviance was unveiled at the start of the school year and is helping streamline the application process, said Jan Deleault, Pinkerton’s director of guidance. The software program allows students to easily request transcripts and letters of recommendation, explore careers and take interest surveys, Deleault said.
Plans call for allowing juniors to access the program in the spring, and eventually for all 3,100 Pinkerton students to use Naviance.
“This is the first time we’ve done this,” Deleault said. “We’re a little nervous, but so far so good.”
Students are already using the program and know how to request letters of recommendation, Deleault said. The next step will be to give a PowerPoint presentation to faculty with a tutorial to follow.
Another feature of the program will allow guidance counselors to track which colleges Pinkerton graduates gain admission to and to keep their corresponding GPA and SAT records on file. This historical, anonymous information will allow parents to assess their children’s chances of going to a particular college.
