About Us

College and Career Specialists are located at each of the five high schools in the Paradise Valley Unified School District. They can help with concerns about FAFSA, scholarships, applying to college, and more.

Naviance Student is another valuable resource available to our students/families. PVSchools high school students can access Naviance Student through the Authentication Portal. Naviance Student offers many college and career planning tools like interest surveys, career exploration, free test preparation (SAT & ACT), college searches, scholarship searches, ordering transcripts, and college visit schedules.
