Welcome to Quest Forward Academy!

Choosing a high school can be an overwhelming experience with lots of things to consider. Class sizes, student support, transportation, and tuition and scholarships . . . where to begin? There is a lot to talk about!

As the Director of Recruitment, it is important to me that I can get to know each family and student considering Quest Forward Academy. We can work together to get you all of the information you need to determine if this is the right place for your student to make their high school years their best.

Feel free to get in touch to learn more about Visit Days, the admissions process, or any other questions you might have.

Annual tuition at Quest Forward Academy for 2020-2021 is $11,000.

“Our daughter went into QuestForward Academy a shy introvert and after a few months she was becoming more confident and even able to lead. We love how it isn’t about memorizing about the past, but more about preparing the students for the future.”

— Renee, Parent at Quest Forward Academy Omaha

“ Everything from the staff, to the location, and curriculum exceeded our expectations. They allow the students to explore individual interests while encouraging them to grow in their experiences. The classroom setting is more like a workplace, which prepares them for real life, placing them ahead of their peers at other schools. I tell everyone who is looking for a unique, yet independent and rigorous learning experience for their child to check out Quest Forward. ”

— Lisa, Parent at Quest Forward Academy Omaha

“After one semester at the school our boys are all smiles. They come home animated about what they are learning and both have experienced growth and successes... The mentors have high expectations and through encouragement and compassion our sons look forward to school everyday.

— Greg and Sheri, Parents at Quest Forward Academy Santa Omaha
