Family Connection from Naviance Succeed

Family Connection is a comprehensive website that students and parents can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers.  Family connection is linked with College Planner, a service that we use in our office to track and analyze data about college, so it provides up-to-date information that’s specific to our school. The family connection site is specific to our school and includes announcements on college representative visits, local scholarships, and allows interaction between the students, counselors, teachers, and parents.  Visit our school’s Family Connection site at:
