Naviance by Hobsons is a comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness platform that enables self-discovery, career exploration, academic planning, and college preparation for millions of students across all ages and around the globe.

Hobsons is dedicated to advancing education—from helping K-12 students discover their strengths to ensuring that college students receive the resources they need to succeed and complete a college degree.
