Family Connection is a web-based program that Battlefield students of all grade levels can use free of charge for college searches, building a resume, setting goals through the game plan, and personality and career interest inventories. In addition to those resources, seniors also use this program for requesting transcripts and searching for scholarships. We encourage all students to use this valuable resource as they develop and refine their post-secondary plans. Parents can have access to much of the same information by logging into the website as a guest. The link to sign on to Family Connection
can be found on the Battlefield High School web page under “Our School” --> "Counseling Center" --> "Naviance/FamilyConnection".

The application for a work permit requires submission of two documents; a Permission for Employment form (to be completed by parent/guardian) and an Employer Intent to Employ form (to be completed by the employer) to the Labor and Employment Law Division. For more information and to download the forms, visit the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry.
Governor's Early College Scholars Program
The Governor's Early College Scholars Program is intended to encourage eligible high school students to complete requirements for a high school diploma and concurrently earn at least 15 hours of transferable credits toward a college degree. This program can potentially result in a more productive senior year and reduce the amount of college tuition for families. Students earning a college degree in seven semesters instead of eight can save an average of $5,000 in college expenses.
The Governor's Early College Scholars Program agreement may be signed at any time, from ninth to twelfth grade. Participants agree to: (1) earn an Advanced Studies diploma with a Governor’s Seal and (2) earn at least15 transferable college credits while enrolled in high school.Interested students can download the Early College Scholars Agreement here
or pick one up in the Counseling Center. Completed forms should be returned to the Counseling Center.
