StudentKeys Program FAQs

What is the goal of the StudentKeys program?

PeopleKeys believes that every student has unlimited potential. Our mission is to help students flourish in school, career, and life by identifying and encouraging their natural personal strengths in several critical areas.

What does the StudentKeys program include?

The program has six components vital to a student’s life: Personality Styles (communication preferences), Perceptual Styles (learning preferences), Cognitive Styles (thinking preferences), Values Styles (motivational preferences), Career Choices (based upon personality preferences), and Goal Setting (using all preferences to set goals). Five of the workbooks include short assessments that identify the individual’s “style” and how he/she can maximize strengths and appreciate limits. The six workbooks are available separately or as a complete package.

Who can benefit from StudentKeys?

High school students, home school students, and college students are the target audience for the StudentKeys Program. Learn more by clicking the links below.

Is StudentKeys appropriate for students that haven’t started high school yet?

Absolutely. Though the target audience is high school and above, parents using a leader’s guide can tailor instruction for students at any level, regardless of age. If your child is very young, however, you might consider starting with The Children’s Profile.

The Children’s Profile is designed specifically with younger audiences in mind.

Are there teaching materials I can use to help guide students through the StudentKeys program?

Leader’s guides are available for each workbook (six leader’s guides total). The guides follow each workbook page by page. Leader’s guides were designed to help administer the assessment and workbook material in a one-hour time frame or longer. Leader’s guides cover each workbook’s contents, background theory, tips on class exercises, ideas for group discussions, and suggestions to get the most out of each workbook. The six leader’s guides are available separately or as a complete package.
