NAVIANCE and Student Success Plans

Greenwich High School is pleased to introduce you to Family Connection from Naviance, a web-based service designed especially for students and parents.  Naviance is a comprehensive web site that you can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers.  We use Naviance in the Guidance Offices to track and analyze data about our students’ college and career plans.  Naviance will allow students to:

  • Get involved in the planning and advising process - Build a resume, complete on-line 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 students who have already applied from our high school.
  • Sign up for college visits - Find out which colleges are visiting our school and sign up to attend those sessions.
  • If you need help submitting school documents for college applications  electronically, click here

Go to  http://connection.naviance.com/ghs  and use your personalized registration code to login.  Register your Naviance account as a new user.  You will need to create a password and provide an email address (students must use their greenwichschools.org address).  If you have already registered, you can skip this step.  For returning users, the email address and password you provided during registration will be used to sign into your account.  If you are a parent who has  more than one child in either middle school or high school, you can get help from your child’s school counselor to link the accounts to one parent username.
