Quest Academy was established in 1982 to provide an appropriate learning environment for gifted children whose educational needs were not being well served by their local public schools.
Quest Academy provides gifted children with a challenging curriculum and a nurturing environment.
Our program emphasizes sound character along with scholarship and creativity in both the academics and the arts.
The Quest community values the individuality of each child and encourages each to strive for personal excellence.
At Quest Academy we believe that gifted children, due to their elevated intellectual capacity, have unique abilities and social/emotional needs.
