Family Connection from Naviance is a comprehensive website that you can use to help in making decisions about courses, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Counselor’s Office, a service that we use in our office to track and analyze data about college and career plans, so it provides up-to-date information that’s specific to our school. Family Connection will allow you 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
- Explore Careers – get helpful information about particular careers such as job descriptions, necessary skills, what tasks are performed and typical wages earned to name a few.
- 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
Family Connection also lets us share information with you about up-coming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other Web resources for college and career information. You can also use the site to send us an e-mail message. Some of the features are listed below.
Explore careers and clusters
Exploring clusters can be a useful way to find a good career match, especially if you have general areas of interest but are not sure what specific careers match those interests. Career clusters can also help you better understand how your coursework in school can prepare you for certain types of careers.
Students can search for colleges based on numerous qualifications like location, size of student body, majors offered, cost, etc. Naviance includes over 6,000 colleges from all over the world in its database. Counselors have found this search engine to be easy to use and to yield quality results.
It’s easy to look up information on any college of interest to you. Students can find out admission requirements, majors and activities offered and statistics about the student body at the click of a button. It is easy to research colleges as current college information is readily available, including a direct link to the college homepage.
College Match and College Compare
Because we use Naviance to keep track of our applications and admissions decisions, students can access statistics that represent last year’s HWRHS applicants to specific schools. This data shows SAT (or ACT) scores and GPA’s of applicants (without names) and indicate whether the student was admitted, waitlisted or denied. This data will allow students to have an understanding of how their stats match up to previous applicants. You are strongly encouraged to use these features in conjunction with consultation with your guidance counselor.
