Elite Service I
Academic Counseling

Quest’s Elite Service I is an academic counseling program geared for international students who need academic support and help improving their grades.   Counselors work one on one with students to assess academic needs and tailor each session so that it has the greatest possible benefit to the student. Regular monthly meetings with advice and support on how you can set goals and form better study habits that are proven to raise your GPA.

Our counselors use dual levels of support to help you focus on developing skills and habits you need for academic success in the American school system. The first level includes academic and interpersonal skills, goal setting, confidence building, time management, study methods, and effective classroom communication. The second level of support focuses on grades, academic performance and raising the GPA.
