Meet our Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff embrace and convey the mission and philosophy of Quest Academy. This commitment ensures attention to the gifted student experience that includes an inspiring and challenging curriculum and compassion to create a nurturing classroom environment.

Educators from around the country have debated and, no doubt, will continue to debate the definition of giftedness for some time, changing terminology and focus to suit the political climate. At Quest Academy we have consistently defined giftedness as an innate intellectual capacity that affects every aspect of a child’s life. We take delight in the idiosyncrasies that are associated with high intelligence, traits that are sometimes viewed as negative in other educational settings. Quest’s program has been designed specifically for the gifted child, and Quest’s teachers are trained to acknowledge, appreciate, and accommodate the particular skills and traits associated with giftedness.
