  • 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.

As a parent of two graduates I can strongly recommend this school - my students were well prepared, confident, and successful in high school. It was worth every penny.
