Brother Rice High School is using Naviance/Family Connection to assist our students in managing their post high school plans. Family Connection, powered by Naviance is a comprehensive website that students and parents can use to plan for college, as well as research future career opportunities.
We are pleased to make this resource available to our students and parents in addition to individual appointments, counselor presentations, College Fair, Financial Aid Night, College Information Night, and visits from college representatives to Brother Rice.
While the heaviest users of Family Connection are our junior and senior students, many of our younger students and their parents will find this tool to be helpful in long term planning.
We encourage our students and parents to use this valuable website throughout their high school career.
