Adams 12 Five Star Schools is pleased to introduce Family Connection, which is linked with Naviance™ – a comprehensive website that you and your student can use to make plans about colleges and careers. Adams 12 has been partnering with Naviance™ since the 2011-2012 school year. Our original focus was at the high school level to house students required ICAP (Individual Career and Academic Plan). We introduced Naviance™ to all middle school grade levels.
Family Connection allows your student to:
- Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete online surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers
- 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
- Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters, and take career inventory assessments
- Create plans for the future – Create goals and to-dos, complete tasks assigned by the school to better prepare your student for future college/career goals, plan high school courses and explore scholarships
Along with the many features that Naviance™ has, it also allows us to communicate via email with your students and now with you. Schools may send information regarding upcoming meetings, upcoming events, local scholarship opportunities, programs, and other resources for college and career information that you and your student might find exciting. High school students have been given login credentials. Middle school students will be registering and creating their account soon.
To visit our school’s Family Connection site, use an Internet browser on our Helpful Websites Page.
We hope that you will find this resource helpful. If you have questions about Family Connection, please contact us.
