Are You Ready For An Adventure?

Learning a foreign language through immersion will accelerate the learning process, and you will become fluent in no time. As a student who can speak a second language, you will be a more desirable candidate in the job market and you will gain a new perspective on the ever-changing global world we live in.

“At its best, travel should challenge our preconceptions and most cherished views, cause us to rethink our assumptions, shake us a bit, make us broader minded and more understanding.”
Arthur Frommer

Host Family Accomodation

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.

Comprehensive Orientation

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.
