The Ocean City High School Guidance Department provides Naviance to assist our students in managing the college application process. Naviance is a comprehensive website that students and parents can use as a tool in planning for college. We are pleased to make this resource available to all of our students and families as a complement to the other college-related services we offer to students and parents through the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years. For juniors and seniors registered with personal accounts, Naviance is a place to organize personal data, lay out a game plan, maintain a list of prospective colleges, and track the application process. We encourage our students to utilize this website throughout their high school years. The Guidance Department may periodically post information of interest to students, and we have the ability to send group emails to pass along information targeted to subgroups (for example, all registered students interested in or applying to a particular college). While heaviest usage is among our juniors and seniors, many of our younger students and their parents will also find this tool to be helpful in longer-term planning. Here are some of the features to explore: College Lookup This research tool provides comprehensive information on thousands of colleges. In addition to general and admissions information, further data is presented on academics, cost and financial aid, student body characteristics, extracurricular and athletic programs. A link to each college's website is provided. For colleges to which Ocean City High School students (2007-2017) have applied, numbers applying, admitted, and enrolled are shown, with a link to a "scattergram" graph.
College Search Enter criteria such as size, location, cost, availability of specific majors or athletic programs and students can produce a list of colleges that meet their criteria. Acceptance History This feature shows all colleges to which Ocean City High School students have been accepted, as well as the number of students accepted and number enrolling at each college.
