Naviance Family Connection/Scholarships

Naviance Family Connection is a web-based service designed especially for students and parents. It is a comprehensive website that you can use to help in making decisions about colleges, scholarships and careers.

Naviance Family Connection will allow students and parents 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; assist with high school planning by allowing students to create and manage four year plans.
  • Research Careers – Naviance Family Connection offers the “Career Interest Profiler” as an on-line career interest assessment for students based on Holland’s interest codes. The “Do What You Are” feature begins with a personality inventory and concludes with a report describing the student’s personality type, potential careers, and related majors. The results link students directly to detailed career profiles, which include educational requirements, salary data, and in some cases even multimedia presentations. Students may also link directly to the college database to find colleges that offer an educational path to each career;
  • 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;
  • Apply for Scholarships – Check the most up-to-date list of scholarships that are on the local, state and national level.
