Quests

Our Quests program offers Grades 7 & 8 students the freedom to shape their course time around questions with teachers facilitating group explorations rather than leading a set syllabus.

Quests are student-driven in both choice and content. Students can choose a Quest that is project-based, problem-based, product-driven, skill-specific, service-oriented, or one that evolves with them. With new course options each trimester, students have the opportunity to explore multiple topics outside of the traditional curriculum, or follow one project through three courses with each building upon the last.

In the all-School curriculum, Quests provide a bridge in Grades 7 & 8 between the student-led FAB Lab mornings in the Learning Village Grades K – 6, and the Upper School Intensives courses. All of these programs focus on topics outside of the typical curriculum.

Check out what some Quests have worked on and see past offerings below.
