9th Grade Students (Class of 2020): Naviance Family Connection

All Incoming Freshman:
 
You have been registered for the Naviance College and Career Program (Naviance - Family Connection) website, so you should have already received a computer generated WELCOME EMAIL providing logon instructions.
 
Family Connection from Naviance® is a web-based program that links the counseling office and schools with students and parents to improve college, and career planning.  While we anticipate heaviest usage of this program among our juniors and seniors, many of our 9th and 10th grade students will find this tool to be helpful in longer-term planning. The Career component in Naviance makes this program an ideal site for our 9th and 10th graders to investigate career paths using the various personality and work related surveys to assist them in these endeavors. Think of Naviance as an Online Organizer between school and home. Guidance utilizes the data you record in Naviance to enhance your post-graduate plans.
 
We use the email feature in Naviance as the primary communication tool between Guidance, Students and Parents regarding announcements, publications, and the like.  Email should be checked at least once a week by all students and parents.  
 
ALL 9th GRADE STUDENTS will be shown how to use this program in greater detail in September/October.  Your counselors will meet with you and show you how to start using some of the features.  
 
Some of the many features of this program:
*College and Scholarship Search
*Career Planning
*Career Interest and Personality Survey
*College Application Process
*Signing up for College Visits to WHS (for juniors and seniors only)
*Career Videos
*And much, much more.
 
The counselors are off for summer break, but should you have a question please feel free to call (201-652-9000 ext 5007) or email Ms. Cassidy, Guidance Secretary.
