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 their unique career path.

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.

I have complete control of my learning journey and I know I always have the ability to work with my mentors to mold my education to fit me, my interests, and my goals.

— Madi L., Student at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa

I value the close-knit, caring community at Quest Forward Academy. I am always surrounded by people who I care about and who respect me, making me feel comfortable being completely myself.

— Lillian S., Student at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa

I value the abundance of opportunities and resources that Quest Forward Academy provides to the students. As students, we have the opportunity to participate in internships, junior college classes, unique field trips, exciting lab activities, and engaging classroom discussions. These opportunities have allowed me to think deeply about how my personal interests connect to my academic career.

— Sara D. Student at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa

A smaller environment allows you to be more comfortable and confident with learning in groups meanwhile helping you reach your full potential.

— Daisy O., Student at Quest Forward Academy Omaha

I have no idea how we’ve gotten such a great group of teachers. They always have such a good attitude and knowing that your teacher wants to be a teacher and wants you to succeed, that support is really powerful.

— Azi, Student at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa

Through the personal connections we can all develop with our mentors, I've basically decided what I want to do with my life. Quests and being able to independently study apart from the quests have really opened up a lot of opportunities for me to narrow down my career path.

— Montana, Student at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa
