Here is the process for logging in: Naviance is now part of the Clever Portal. Please log in to your Clever account, you will see the new Naviance icon/button under Learning Resources. When you click on the Naviance icon/button you will go directly into your Naviance account.

SAT exams are administered several times per year at locations outside of the Northshore School District. Students will need to establish a College Board account before they can register for these tests. It is important that the student registers with their own account, not a parent's account. Creating an account takes about 30 minutes. This is the same account that you will use if you are registering for an AP test.
With a College Board account, you can register for the SAT, and access/print your SAT Admission Ticket. You can also access your SAT scores online, and send them to colleges. Additionally, an account lets you manage your personal college list, save your scholarship searches, compare costs at colleges that interest you, and more.
As these tests fill up quickly, we recommend that if you want to test at a convenient location that you sign up for the SAT early. Otherwise you might end up taking the test at a location further away.
Further information on the SAT can be found at www.sat.collegeboard.org
ACT exams are administered at different locations and are administered by ACT.org.
Students will need an ACT account in order to register for these tests.
Further information about the ACT exam, including requirements, locations and how to register for the ACT, can be found at act.org.
