There has never been a better time to travel abroad and live the adventure in another country. As an American student, you have a unique opportunity to promote intercultural awareness and global compassion by sharing your American culture. You will feel empowered to celebrate diversity and foster a more understanding world. Learning a foreign language through immersion will accelerate your learning process.
The Quest staff understands the challenges that exchange students often face. Our team members have all lived abroad and have learned another language while overcoming cultural differences. Their understanding and compassion are transmitted through Quest’s exceptional customer service. Our trusted partners overseas have been working with student exchange for many years. We are familiar with their requirements for accepting students and can quickly process your application documents.
You and your parents will work with a Quest advisor who walks you through the options, helps you make decisions and assists you in creating an application that will stand out!
With 20 countries to choose from, your dream of studying abroad can become a reality. Each country has something special to offer. Whether it is an adventure, learning a new language or exploring your family's history and heritage, we can take you there!
Quest's partners abroad carefully select host families who show a genuine interest in hosting American students. Your host family will introduce you to their country's customs and culture, giving you a real-life experience that will help you learn and grow.
Quest advisors prepare you and your parents for your study abroad program by giving guidance and sound advice that helps you understand what expectations, challenges, and experiences you may face.
While some destinations require previous language skills, Quest offers a wide variety of countries where students can experience language immersion or brush up on current language skills. If you do not speak another language - no problem! Choose one of our English-speaking countries where you can focus on your studies and immerse yourself in a totally different culture!
Your parents will have peace of mind knowing that you have a local coordinator who is there to support you during your program. Coordinators help students adjust to the routines, understand cultural differences and guide them through any challenges that may arise.
Quest has toured Chile and selected some of the most sought-after schools in the country! Are you looking for a semester or tri-semester program with minimal language requirements? Chile is an amazing choice!
This type of experience is truly amazing anywhere because you expose yourself to the world and different cultures, and you become aware that there are so many places that are outside of the 20 mile radius that you usually live your life in.Elijah from united States Studied in Italy
The Quest program I participated in was honestly the best experience of my life. The experience itself was amazing, and I got the opportunity to make great friends for life, see a whole different country and experience another culture at a young age.Sarah from Australia Studied in Portland, Oregon
Being able to speak another language is such a great advantage. And it’s also great to know more about other cultures, instead of just reading about the country in a geography book. I’m really glad I decided to study in Germany for a year with Quest.Julia from the United States
The best experience of my life was this Exchange program. All young people should do the same. It is an unforgettable experience. Thank you Quest International and all Chileans for your welcome and for making me feel like one of you!Jenny Nordberg studied in Chile
The Quest program is an excellent way to get out into the world, see new things, and meet new people. These experiences will always be with you and you will meet people who will forever be part of your life.Katie from the United States Studied in Germany
There are few decisions in life where you wouldn’t change a thing, but I can say without a doubt that my high school exchange experience with Quest was one of them. A big thank you to Quest!Samantha Costa from Brazil
