Family Connection & Naviance

About Family Connection 
Family Connection is a customizable Internet-based college and career exploration and planning tool from Naviance used by Highline Public Schools’ students to develop a career plan and explore career and college options. Family Connection entries are visible to students' teachers and counselors, helping us know our students by name, strength, and need so they graduate ready for college, career and citizenship. Family Connection can be accessed from school, from home, or wherever students have internet access, including on their mobile device.
