Beyond the Classroom

Beyond the Classroom

At Quest, we believe learning should include experiences beyond the classroom.

All Quest students take at least one Experiential Learning Block, where hands-on learning complements their course plan and reflects their academic interests and their Question.

Students can also go on exchange through the Study Abroad program, and can fulfill their language requirement in an Immersion Destination locally or abroad. From American Sign Language to Mandarin, and from Spanish to German or French and beyond, Quest students can learn languages around the world.

Study Abroad might mean a Block in Morocco, South Korea, Sweden, or Bhutan, among many possibilities. Quest adds new partner schools regularly, so check back often or inquire with the Coordinator of New and International Student Services. 

Field Studies can be another highlight of a Quest education. A trip may entail a day-visit to the local estuary or a two-week stay abroad, from Paris or Turkey to Antarctica or Hawaii and beyond.

You can find details about eligibility and policies in the Academic Calendar. Meanwhile, explore a few Beyond the Classroom highlights on these pages.
