BCHS Naviance Family Connection

Naviance Family Connection, commonly referred to as Naviance, is a secure, comprehensive web-based resource that students can use to help them make plans about high school courses, colleges, and careers. Naviance is specific to our school and tracks student data, including GPA and test scores. This allows current students to compare their data with previous data to make predictions about college acceptance. Naviance also lets the College and Career Center share information with students about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources related to college and career planning.
