NAVIANCE

Naviance is a college and scholarship database that is available to all Franklin Central students. In addition to providing students with a list of scholarship opportunities, the ability to conduct online college searches, and access to college admissions data, Naviance is also a communication tool between students and their counselor. The counseling office helps students register for Naviance during their freshman year. If your child does not remember his or her password for Naviance, it can be reset at the Naviance website. The new Naviance website is https://student.naviance.com/fchs.

The Counseling Office is also on Twitter and Facebook. Follow us @FCCounselors on Twitter for updates and reminders and at http://www.facebook.com/franklincentralcounselors on Facebook.
