A small, independent high school where students thrive.

Does your child wish for a personalized school, with smaller classes, and teachers who actually know them and what they need?

When Quest Forward Academy students join in grade 9 they begin a 4-year journey to hone their skills and build essential habits for success. Every year, students progress through a curriculum of skills-focused projects that prepare them for college and career.

Supported by 4 years of comprehensive counseling, integrated internship experiences, dual-enrollment options, and our City as Campus program, Quest Forward Academy graduates are equipped to achieve their dreams.

Quest Forward Academy gives me the freedom to show the creative and fun side of me that I couldn’t express at other schools.

— McKinley J., Student at Quest Forward Academy Omaha

If I want to take a particular class, they will help me find a way to fit that class into my schedule... or they will offer me an independent study so that I can earn credit for taking the classes I want to take. They create specialized classes for my future.
