College Counseling | Family Connection by Naviance

 

The Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools have integrated Family Connection from Naviance into our College and Career Counseling offerings and processes. Family Connection, the world’s most widely adopted college and career readiness platform, is a web-based service designed especially for students and parents. It helps students connect personal skills to college and career goals and track progress towards those goals. Family Connection also helps to simplify and streamline the college application process by providing a single platform through which the efforts of all internal stakeholders can be coordinated.

The Academy of the New Church has also purchased Naviance eDocs. eDocs will allow us to prepare and send college application documents such as transcripts and letters of recommendation electronically to more than 1,700 colleges and universities around the world.

Amongst its benefits, Family Connection allows our students 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
  • Request Transcripts/Letters of Recommendation - Update your college counselor or teacher about steps they need to take in your application process
  • Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters, and take career assessments
  • Create plans for the future – Create goals and to-dos, and complete tasks assigned by the school to better prepare your student for future college and career goals.

Family Connection also lets us share information with you about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information.
