College and Career Planning - Family Connection
Beginning in 10th grade, the Fair Lawn High School Counseling Department teaches students to use Family Connection from Naviance, a Web-based tool that students and parents can use to help in making decisions about future careers and college programs.
Registered and trained students and their parents may visit our school’s Family Connection site at home, using any computer Web browser to connect to:
Students and parents can continue to use these important resources throughout high school by signing in using the e-mail address (user name) and password the student chose during the registration process.
We encourage students to get started in the career planning and college advising process by completing the Exploring Interests Survey and the Do What You Are Survey. The results will link you to career information, potential college majors, and colleges. Results may be discussed with the student’s counselor.
We hope that you will find this resource helpful. If you have further questions, please contact us at the Fair Lawn High School Counseling Office.
In order to be eligible for nomination for scholarships awarded at the Senior Honors Assembly in June, students must complete the General Scholarship Application and return to the Guidance office. The form, available below, is due no later than February 8th 2012.
