I’m thrilled to welcome you to explore Quest Forward Academy. As Director of Admissions and Recruitment and as a parent of a Quest Forward Academy graduate, I can speak personally to the joy (and surprise) parents feel when their teenager comes home from school, excited to share what they experienced that day. 

Students don’t just get a rigorous high school education at Quest Forward Academy — they participate in a transformative learning experience. Students learn practical, real-world skills and habits that will prepare them for anything, allowing their confidence to soar. Quest Forward Academy also does a great job acknowledging that each student is unique and needs to be seen and heard to help prepare them for their best young adult life. Students are empowered with choices, supported closely by mentors, and are encouraged to pursue the path that fits them best. The results are amazing. 

Now a junior in college, my daughter is well-prepared to create her future, and she is mature, responsible, and thriving. 

Every teen is different, and I hope to help you and your student find their best path. Feel free to contact me to learn more about the academy, the admissions process, or to schedule a tour, in person or virtually. I look forward to getting to know you!
