This schedule provides Quest Forward Academy with a great deal of flexibility to offer innovative programming to our students. The two and three week intercessions provide opportunities for intensive work in electives or travel or independent projects, and provide students with a change of pace from the core academic content. The summer session will continue to provide students with an opportunity to catch up in courses and will also provide new opportunities for service learning and internships, as well as a chance to do project work and electives.
