The computer program, NAVIANCE Family Connection, enables our counseling department to offer a comprehensive website that students can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers. Juniors and seniors can research colleges, compare GPA, SAT scores, and other statistics to college admissions requirements. All students can build a resume, take a career interest inventory, view the schedule of college rep visits, and much more.
We are pleased to make this resource available to all of our students and families as a complement to the series of individual appointments, college-related speakers, parent information presentations, and guidance seminars that we offer throughout the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior years.
All students receive a first time registration code in the fall of freshman year. Once they successfully register for the first time, the user name is an email address and the password is one that the students choose themselves.
Some Naviance Features:
This Career Interest Profiler includes useful reports that show each student’s personality and interest assessment results and those careers you might want to explore.
This research tool provides comprehensive information on thousands of colleges. In addition to general and admissions information, further data is presented on academics, cost and financial aid, student body characteristics, extracurricular, and athletic programs. A link to each college’s website is provided.
Enter Criteria such as size, location, cost, availability of specific majors or athletic programs, and students can produce a list of colleges that meet their criteria.
