Don't let travel restrictions slow you down!   The Naviance platform has two ways for students and parents to connect with college representatives.  (Please see College Visit - Naviance Instructions to the right.)
  • Through Naviance, college representatives are scheduling times to meet specifically with Hackettstown students.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn information in a small group, virtual meeting.
  • Also through Naviance, colleges are posting information about rep meetings, virtual tours, help sessions and more that any high school student can attend.
 
Parents should ask their son/daughter for the Naviance login information for access to this information.
