We highly recommend all students and families make a Family Connection/ Naviance account!
Family Connection is a comprehensive website that you can use to plan for college and a career. Family Connection is linked with Naviance, a service that we use in our office to track and analyze data about college and career plans. It provides us with up-to-date information that is specific to our school. Naviance is also how we submit all student's transcripts and letters of recommendations to colleges!
Family Connection allows you to:
Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete online surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers
Research colleges – Compare GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual historical data from our school for students who have applied and been admitted in the past
Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters, and take career assessments
Create plans for the future – Create goals and to-dos, and complete tasks assigned to you by the school to better prepare yourself for your future college and career goals
Two full-length SAT practice tests are available through Naviance: students should use them over the summer or during breaks to become familiar with the test and learn about their strengths and challenge areas
Family Connection also lets us share information with you about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information. You can also use the site to stay in communication with the counseling office.
* IMPORTANT: Students need an email address to create an account on Naviance. An up-to-date and "professional" email address (i.e., Wally_Warrior@mascot.net
) is recommended since students will be using Naviance to apply to colleges.
Students should contact their Guidance Counselor or the College & Career Center if they have questions about Naviance, their login information, or how to use the tools Naviance provides.
