Thoughts from alumni...

"Above all things, Quest taught me how to think creatively. To this day, I excel in all of my endeavors and at all the many challenges that life presents me because of the way Quest Academy trained me to think and problem solve."

Parent Ed Night – Screenagers

Friday, September 15, 6:00 pm FREE Event

We are pleased to have the opportunity to host a screening of the movie SCREENAGERS. This event is open to the public, invite your family and friends. The documentary explores how learning, playing and socializing online affects teens' developing attention span, fragile self-esteem and moral instincts. SCREENAGERS examines the real risks of failing in school, social isolation and digital addiction. Ultimately, the film explores solutions to handle screen time and provides parents with tools to help young people develop self-control and find balance in their digital lives.

Nut Free Policy Update

Thank you all for your support of our nut free policy. Below is an explanation of how we will handle a situation where a student brings food that does not follow our policy:


First Offense:

The supervising teacher will ask student to put that food item back into their bag and wipe their table.

The student will go and get a lunch from Gourmet Gorilla, charged to Quest Academy.

The supervising teacher should give the student a letter (found in a folder in the lunchroom) explaining the infraction and a reminder of our policy, which should go home with the student.

The supervising teacher should let Phyllis know.

Phyllis will send an email to the student's parent (cc'ing the student's homeroom teacher or advisor) in addition to the letter home.
