Naviance

  • Naviance/Family Connection is a software program accessible from the Susquehannock High School Counseling Department website. Susquehannock requires students to use the Naviance/Family Connection program in the Career Seminar class, for tracking their Graduation Project, and during the college application process in order to manage communications between SGS and college admissions offices, including letters of recommendation.

    This program also allows students and their parents to determine the student’s learning styles and career interest and research colleges and careers to assist with post-secondary planning. Parents and their students each have their own “log in” for Naviance/Family Connection and can use the program independently.

    Log on information and a guide to navigate the various components of Naviance has been uploaded. If you have any questions, please let your student’s school counselor know.
