Alternatively Schooled Students

Students with non-traditional educational backgrounds are welcome at Quest. If your education was outside the conventional public or private systems, you’re probably used to exploring topics in depth and working independently.

With classes of no more than 20 students, you’ll work closely with your professors (we call them tutors to reflect the collaborative nature of learning at Quest), whom you’ll get to know on a first-name basis. Guided by your faculty advisor and, later, your mentor, you’ll shape your own academic journey.


Quest believes that grades, though important, are just one facet of an individual’s academic identity. We want to know who you are and why you’re excited about Quest.

Here are some tips if you’re coming from a non-traditional academic program:

  • Review the application process and requirements
  • Contact your admissions counsellor, who can answer any questions related to your case
  • In the absence of a high school transcript, we recommend you send us any of the following: evaluations, GED, letters of recommendation, a resume, a reading list, published works, and/or a portfolio
  • While we don’t require standardized tests, in the absence of a transcript, SAT/ACT scores may be helpful
