Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools are proud to announce the purchase and implementation of Family Connection from Naviance, the world’s most widely adopted college and career readiness platform.
Family Connection 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. The service 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.
Family Connection will allow 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 – Match colleges to career interests, look up admission rates, and utilize cutting edge tools to explore and compare colleges and universities
- 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.

Our students now have excellent college and career preparation resources at their fingertips anywhere they have access to the internet. They also have a tool that will enable them to better manage the difficult college application process."
