Financial Aid

Quest seeks to attract a talented and diverse student body. To achieve that end, Quest provides financial assistance to qualified students whose families cannot afford full tuition. On average, nearly 25% of the student body receives financial assistance annually. To apply for financial aid for the 2018-2019 school year, please see the information in the “Financial Aid Application Process” below.

Quest offers financial aid to families on the basis of demonstrated need, as determined by your family’s particular financial circumstances. Quest has a limited financial aid budget, and as such we review and award aid requests in the following order:

  • First to students who currently receive aid
  • Second to other current students
  • Third to new students

Quest Academy uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process financial aid applications. SSS is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. Based on the financial information you provide, SSS gives us an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
