New– Short Term High School Program
American School Experience (ASE) – a short term, less expensive version of our F-1 Private High School Exchange Program USA.

New– Cultural Passport
The Cultural Passport to America encourages F-1 school program students to engage in meaningful cross-cultural activities that will enhance and improve their experience of studying in the United States. Students participate in activities listed in their “passport” such as joining an extracurricular club, cooking a meal for their host family, volunteering in a community service project, or giving a presentation about their home country. Students who complete a number of activities will be eligible for fun prizes! This program is aimed at getting students more involved in their schools and community, while improving their leadership skills allowing them to experience more of what the United States has to offer.

New– Deaf Student Exchange Program
What makes Quest Exchange different from other exchange agencies? Our passion for education and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that exchange opportunities are available to all students, hearing or deaf! We have several school locations to choose from with options for students to attend for one month up to one year. Our first student, from Belgium, is having a great time attending school in Arizona on our “premier” deaf student program.
