Quest for Education And Arts

Our mission is to foster a love of Jesus by providing the best possible, spirit-filled opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds, whether you home school, public school, unschool, or just love to learn. We believe excellence in education gives glory to God.

Our philosophy: Education must be enjoyed so that it is remembered and becomes an integral part of who the student is.   Fun Theory, the art of learning through hands on enjoyable experiences, framed in Biblical principles, provides the best possible opportunities for student retention and useful application of knowledge.

 

"whatever you have learned or heard from me, or seen in me - put it into practice. and the god of peace will be with you."

-philippians 4:9-


What We Do

At Quest, our primary goal is to provide supplementary educational classes to help support and complement the education children receive at home or through other schooling. Classes range from the core subjects; like science and math, to electives; like photography and dance and include everything in between. To learn more about how we strive to complement your home schooling effort please read "How Quest Functions as a Home School Support Entity".

In addition to classes, we also organize and manage the annual Home School Science Fair every February. We are now coming upon our seventh fair and it grows every single year.

As a team, we strive to provide the highest quality experiences for everyone involved. If you have questions or need for information about anything we do- please contact us! We are always happy to help in any way possible.
