School Counseling and College Advising
We are pleased to introduce Family Connection. Family Connection is a comprehensive website to use in helping make plans about courses, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Naviance Succeed™, a service used in our office to track and analyze data about college and career plans; it provides up-to-date information that’s specific to our school.
Family Connection will allow you to:
* Get involved in the planning 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 (once the prior year data is populated).
* Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters and take career assessments such as the Do What You Are test.
* Create plans for the future – Build course plans, create goals and to-dos, and complete tasks assigned to you by the school to better prepare yourself for your future college and career.
Family Connection also allows us to inform you of upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information. You can also use the site to stay in communication with the counseling office.
You will find a link to FamilyConnection/Naviance under the student tab on the Saint Joseph website. Your personal access code/user ID and password are the same as your PowerSchool user ID and PowerSchool password. All students and families will have the opportunity to learn how to use FamilyConnection/Naviance through Counseling Family Nights and group meetings.
