Student Theme: My Strengths, My Future

The mission of the Academy for Career Exploration (ACE) is to inspire students to achieve their greatest potential by understanding their interests, strengths and opportunities. 

The Clifton (Gallup) StrengthsQuest is being used to help students better understand their innate abilities or preferences. With these insights, students can more effectively take responsibility for their learning maximize their talents as they select a professional path as a member of the future workforce.

We invite our Guest Speakers to explore their Strengths using this assessment tool, but it is no way a requirement of the visit.
