A small, independent high school where students thrive.

Does your child wish for a personalized school, with smaller classes, and teachers who actually know them and what they need?

When Quest Forward Academy students join in grade 9 they begin a 4-year journey to hone their skills and build essential habits for success. Every year, students progress through a curriculum of skills-focused projects that prepare them for college, career, and life.

Through academically rigorous, skills-focused project-based learning, integrated internship experiences, dual-enrollment options, and our City as Campus program, Quest Forward Academy graduates are equipped to achieve their dreams.
