Class of 2019 & 2020: Register for the YouScience Strengths Profile/Assessment HERE

Dear Sea King families,
At Palos Verdes High School, we are dedicated to helping all of our students reach their highest potential and watching them succeed in their high school years and beyond. The challenge lies in discovering each student’s unique set of talents, and understanding how those talents will drive college major, career, and even life choices.
That’s why we’re excited to share with you that PVHS, has recently partnered with YouScience, creator of the innovative program called the YouScience Strengths Profile. Learn more about how the program works and watch video demonstrations at
YouScience is an exciting new tool for us, and is being offered, at no charge, directly to our families for the very first time. With this program, students will discover their unique set of talents through the revolutionary intersection of aptitudes, interests and personality. It’s a completely new way to understand where your student will succeed and allows the PVHSCCC and PVHS Counselors to deliver even more effective and accurate college and career guidance.R
The online, scientific program takes students through a series of assessments and interest questions, designed to determine their results in the 9 key aptitudes utilized in the working world. The results include a review of the student’s strengths, suggested environments where they will succeed, detailed information on possible careers that match those skills and interests, majors that map to those careers, and much more. Students may consult with their counselors to review and interpret the comprehensive results, and actually have access to their online results for ten years!
The YouScience assessment is now available to the Classes of 2019 & 2020, while the Classes of 2021 & 2022 will have the opportunity to take the YouScience Profile next year during College Week in October. This is not a mandatory test/assessment; it is completely optional and offered as a resource to PVHS students. Students in the Classes of 2019 & 2020 may REGISTER FOR A PERSONAL ACTIVATION CODE HERE.

Based on the science behind the YouScience assessment and our review of the program, we believe this tool will help students make more informed decisions when it comes to major and career-related choices. This could translate into a more cost-effective and enjoyable journey through the college years, as well as helping students pursue their best fit college and career paths. Please notify me if you have any additional questions.
