Quest Alumni

The finest Chicago area high schools, as well as prestigious out-of-state institutions, both public and independent, are eager to enroll our graduates. We maintain a strong relationship with our alumni through special events and activities, including our annual Alumni Reunion and summer camping trips. Each year a panel of alums return for Meet Our Alumni Night to talk about their transitions to high school and college with our current middle schoolers and their parents.

Here are some quotes from alumni and parents:

“Quest Academy provided an excellent foundation for my daughter not just in terms of academics but also in character development, self-confidence and leadership. Quest gave her the confidence to be her own person and achieve her potential.” - Alumni Parent
“The best thing about her Quest education was that it instilled in her a love of learning, an intellectual curiosity that was nurtured by her classmates and teachers.” - Alumni Parent
“Quest Academy left me extremely prepared for the transition to high school. The transition was less of an academic change than just learning my way around a new school.” - Alumni
“Quest was extremely valuable. Not only did Quest give me the fundamentals I needed to thrive in high school, it also fostered and encouraged a love of learning that was often not nurtured quite as well throughout my high school experience. I have carried this value of learning with me through high school and into college, and it is often what I think of as one of my defining characteristics.” - Alumni
