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.
