Quest Academy serves gifted students from Preschool through Eighth Grade in Palatine, IL (northwest suburbs of Chicago). 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 encou...rages each to strive for personal excellence. Our instruction is guided by “big ideas,” or enduring understandings, that encourage students to engage with the fundamental concepts that lie at the core of every discipline. The enduring understandings also serve to anchor the more quantifiable learning skills, making these far more meaningful, effective, and durable.
