Quest works closely with its school partners to obtain student acceptance and timely delivery of the F-1 visa documents.

Our host families have a genuine desire to participate in a cultural exchange experience. They undergo a thorough screening process including an in-depth orientation program, criminal background checks and an in-home interview with all family members. Quest Exchange host families are prepared and excited to host our students.


Students select which school they wish to attend based on their most important criteria, including location, cost, size, academic profile and more. Our schools offer everything from sports, AP classes, senior admissions, ESL programs and a variety of clubs and extracurricular programs, all on some of the safest campuses in the U.S.

Peace of Mind

Parents will feel good knowing their child has a trained  Local Coordinator to provide support and guidance throughout their child’s program. Our Local Coordinators work in their communities to bring awareness of exchange programs to American schools and families. They provide international students with positive cross-cultural experiences.


Quest provides parents with monthly progress reports written by the Local Coordinator to ensure students are getting the most out of their exchange program. Our Local Coordinators meet with students on a monthly basis; they help during the adjustment period and work together with students and host families to ensure good communication.
