The YouScience Profile is an online assessment that is available to Covenant Day School students. Most high school students have no idea what they want to major in and feel at a loss as to where to start with the college search. Understanding your own personality, interests, and aptitudes can be incredibly helpful in thinking and planning ahead. We encourage you to consider taking the YouScience Profile.The assessment can be taken at the student’s convenience but needs to be completed within a 24 hour time period. The actual testing is 2 hours and 15 minutes. The cost for CDS students is $85 (valued at over $200). For more information and/or to purchase this assessment, click here.
