HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Use D'Angelo 360's Two-Step System and Let Your Natural Abilities Shape Your Career
Asking a high school student–already juggling sports, a social life and a full slate of classes–to plan for five, 10 or 20 years into the future hardly seems fair. But, that’s the exact challenge teenagers face. Decisions about college applications. Selection of advanced placement classes. Deciding the universities that best fit long-term dreams: pre-law, pre-med, engineering or liberal arts.
Or, perhaps the busy teenager just needs help finding a way to keep grades up in a shaky subject.
Finding the Path Together
We can clear the confusion. We begin with The Highlands Ability Battery, an online tool designed to identify not only a student’s inherent abilities but also career fields offering a natural match. Everyone possesses distinct abilities that do not change with time. Natural strengths and interests developed by age 15 remain constant throughout all of our lives. Some of us are intuitive, quickly grasping broad concepts.
Others thrive with details, memorizing and understanding facts and formulae. Each of us falls somewhere along the spectrum. Natural abilities don’t change. Research shows that they are developed by the time we are 14–15 years of age and are constant throughout our lives.
The Highlands Ability Battery’s 30-page report is the first step in the creation of a personal vision of the future. A one-on-one, two-hour conversation with a professional counselor will hep you understand the Highland Ability Battery’s results, the sources of your passion and how you can best focus the traits driving you: Find your best method for learning, and how to apply you natural tendencies to any subject.
