Naviance/Family Connection is a web-based college research and career planning program designed for high school students, parents, teachers, and school counselors. The website manages individual students through the entire college planning, application and decision-making process. Our students will be able to search for scholarships, explore careers, take interest inventories, and investigate their learning styles. They can review academic and admission data for colleges across the United States and also gauge their chances of acceptance by comparing personal GPA/ACT/SAT statistics with those of recent successful applicants.
