Family Connection by Naviance
The Counseling & Career Center is using Family Connection by Naviance, software for career and college exploration.
Students must log on to Naviance using their school username (the one they use to log onto school computers) and the password: notebook. They can change their password once logged in. Parents can log in as a guest for now.
Family Connection is a comprehensive website designed to help parents and students with decisions about courses, colleges and careers. As it is linked with Naviance Succeed, which our office uses to track and analyze data about career and college plans, Family Connection provides up-to-date information that is specific to our school.
