Financial Aid

Quest offers need-based financial aid to families on an annual basis. We use FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to process financial aid applications and provide us with an objective estimate of potential aid awards. Our Financial Aid Committee then reviews all aid awards, and determines awards based on relative need and our available budget.  

To apply for financial aid, please see the information in the “Financial Aid Application Process” below.
