What is Naviance-Family Connection?
 
We invite you to explore Family Connection by NAVIANCE, our website that allows students and parents to investigate, research, track, and plan for the college admission process. There is an abundance of information that will prove to be quite useful. Information is updated on a regular basis to keep students and parents informed about up-coming meetings and events, college admissions visits, scholarship opportunities, and other Web resources for college and career information. It is never too early to start using this site. Freshman and sophomores are encouraged to start the process early. Juniors and Seniors will be using this site to develop a game plan for achieving goals after graduation.

Students are given registration information through the Guidance Office starting in the ninth grade career unit.

Once you are registered you will use your e-mail and password you created everytime to log-in to your Naviance account. The welcome page will appear when you log-in. Announcements and other important information will be posted on the Welcome Page. Check it often!

If you would like to enter as a "guest" click on the log-in page and the password is "komets".
