Naviance Student

Naviance Student  (formerly called Naviance Family Connection) is the primary tool all of our RHS students will use when applying to college.   Now optimized for mobile use, it can be used to research information on colleges, designate colleges of interest, and build a college resume. Student and parents can also use it to search for scholarship opportunities and much more. 

Seniors use this platform in the college application process to manage their application, transcripts and letters of recommendations. Information about college representative visits and scholarships is updated on Naviance Student by Mrs. Wright and Mrs. George regularly. Seniors should check in often!
All students will benefit from utilizing Naviance Student beginning in 9th grade.  There are tools for career exploration, college selection, and resume building.  Students can enter their activities into the resume builder throughout their high school progression to make it easier when it is time to fill out applications and to assist teachers with  recommendation letters All RHS students will have a Naviance Student account. 

Current 10th - 12th graders can access Naviance Student at:
