Counseling Lab for the Exploration of Optimal States (CLEOS)

For creatively gifted young people, the path to the fulfillment of their talents is often a mystery. Unlike more traditional careers, vocations in fields such as the fine and performing arts, invention, and creative entrepreneurship and service don't have clear ladders.  Our goal is to assist high schoolers with unique and creative interests in finding their ideal future. In addition, we hope to gain invaluable insight into the development of creative individuals through  analysis of the assessments students take during their visit to the CLEOS lab.
