The Highland’s Company Assessment is a hidden jewel when it comes to college and career matching.

Wouldn't you like to be able to know the what your teen should look for in a college that best fits his or her nature?

Don't you want to help your son or daughter gain clarity and vision on not only a college match but a field of study that will lead to a fruitful career experience?

Maybe, what you need most of all in this moment is a way to communicate about the future that is more factual than emotional?

I understand. As the mother of a college-bound teen, I get the tension and the desire to help foster a good college and career outcome. I also know the challenges most parents face in communicating with their young, adult children. After 18 years living in a college-prep boarding school and interacting with hundreds of teens throughout their college selection process, I know it's emotional, stressful, and life-changing experience.

One thought. One reaction. One decision. Can change everything.

That's why I want to help you navigate through this process with hope, grace, and practical purpose. Utilizing a three hour, online assessment with 19 timed segments, whichcan be completed over multiple sessions, the Highlands Assessment Battery measures 18 different abilities — such as how you solve problems, whether you like to work with a team, how long you want to work on a project —  that lead to work-type profiles. Those profiles connect to a database of career options and the colleges, universities, and schools that offer the proper degree and certifications.


Highlands Ability Battery


The Highlands Assessment is not only online, it’s also interactive and personalized through working with me, Elisa Pulliam, the owner of Kaleo Agency, a trained life coach, and a Highlands consultant in pre- and post-session preparation as well as a thorough follow-up debrief.  This time is designed to help both you and your son or daughter walk away with a better understanding of how to study, work with peers, and even connect with family members.

While there’s no fool-proof method for finding the perfect college and career match, Highlands offers direction, options, and hope-filled possibilities in the search process.
