Naviance and the Family Connection from Naviance, is a Web-based service designed especially for students and parents. Family Connection is a comprehensive website that parents and students can use to help in making decisions about courses, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Counselor’s Office, a service that we use in our office to track and analyze data about college and career plans, so it provides up-to-date information that is specific to our school.
Family Connection will allow you and your child to:
• Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete on-line 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
• Sign up for college visits – Find out which colleges are visiting our school and sign up to attend those sessions
Family Connection also lets us share information with you and your child about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other Web resources for college and career information. In addition, the site includes a link that your child can use to send us an e-mail message. If you or your child need help establishing your Naviance Family Connection account, please contact Ms. Castillo (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will be happy to sit with you and your child to establish your account.
