StrengthsExplorer Access Code
Children ages 10-14 use the StrengthsExplorer online assessment to discover their natural talents.
A unique StrengthsExplorer access code allows them to take the assessment. This access code is valid for one use only.
Kids who complete the StrengthsExplorer assessment:

The StrengthsExplorer assessment gives kids something no one can take away: knowing what they naturally do best and what makes them unique.

"My two sons took StrengthsExplorer, and it really helped affirm their uniqueness. So often, they compare themselves to each other, but this tool really helped them understand how they are wired differently and how they think differently. It helped them gain a better understand of themselves and their natural gifts."
— John Reimnitz, Parent

"I think the StrengthsExplorer has provided students with a common language and understanding of not only their personal strengths, but the strengths of their classmates, teachers and administrators. The StrengthsExplorer process affirms that everyone has things at which they excel ... and verifies things they may have already noticed about themselves and others. It has been exciting to watch the kids interact with each other and the teachers using the common StrengthsExplorer language."
— Aaron Zabawa, Assistant Principal, Culler Middle School
"Actively exploring one's capabilities and strengths is an important developmental task during adolescence. StrengthsExplorer is a very useful tool that can help youth in this process of discovery and development."
