• College and Career Planning


    Naviance is the primary tool used by Western Hills University High School and a comprehensive college and career readiness solution for middle and high schools that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals. It is designed to provide you with information about time management and study skills improvement, decision making, career information, college planning, and college admission tests.

    Students and parents access the Naviance Portal through Family Connections. Getting started with an assignment or work can sometimes be a problem. However, if you put into practice ideas from this tool, you may find that your high school years will be more rewarding! Please ask your teacher advisor for additional materials or clarification about information on this site. If you are experiencing problems with Naviance or Family Connections, contact Mr. Neeley.
