College & Career Counseling

Each Junior at BMHS receives Post High School Planning information during their individual Course Selection/ College Planning meeting with their counselor. Seniors should return to school in September having completed a college list and the senior survey for Counselor Recommendation in Naviance. Seniors should have set up a Common Application account after August 1st and reviewed the college essay topic on CommonApp.

We work with our web-based Career/College Planning and Advising Tool called Naviance Family Connection. Students have been working in Naviance since Middle school and should have a user name and password in place. Naviance Family connection can be accessed through the following web site. http://connection.naviance.com/mcmahon.

Seniors must link their Naviance and Common Application accounts.Instructions on how to link your accounts can be found on your Naviance homepage once you sign on.
