Using Family Connection from Naviance 

Susan E. Wagner HS is pleased to introduce Family Connection from Naviance, a web-based service designed especially for students and parents.  Family Connection is a comprehensive web site that you can use to help in making decisions about colleges and careers.  Family Connection is a service that we use in the Guidance Office to track and analyze data about our students’ college and career plans.  Family Connection will allow you 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.
  • Research careers and look up scholarships

Activate Your Account

Each student will have a Family Connection account by September.  The username is the OSIS number; the password is the birthdate in this format: 1/2/1995, including the slashes. Parents may ask for a parent account by emailing Ms. O’Connell at joconnell2@schools.nyc.gov.  A parent account will enable you to see how your child is using the site, including results of college searches, career inventories and goal planning, without having to log in as your child.  If there are any problems or questions, please email Ms. O’Connell at the above address.
