Naviance Family Connection
What is Naviance Family Connection?
Welcome to Naviance Family Connection. We are pleased to introduce this comprehensive program that you and your students can use to make plans about college and careers. Family connection allows for your students to:
- Get involved in the planning and advising process-- build resumes, complete online surveys, manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers.
- Research colleges-- match your college priorities, compare GPA, standardized test scores and other academic statistics to historical data from our school for students that have applied and been admitted there.
- Research careers-- Research hundreds of careers, career clusters, take assessments to match talents, interests and skills to careers and view videos about career opportunities within pathways.
- Create plans for the future-- Create goals and to-dos and complete tasks assigned by the school to better prepare your student for their post secondary goals.
- Apply for College and Search for Scholarships-- use the colleges tab to identify colleges you are applying to, match your common app account, apply for colleges, requests transcripts, letters of recommendation and search for both national and local scholarships.
Students and parents each have accounts. Students actively use their account in their 6th block advisory class where they complete several of the above activities as well as curriculum lesson modules that are differentiated at each grade level.
