Want to Choose Where You Will Study in America?

The Quest F-1 Public School program allows students to choose which state they want to live in and which school district they will attend. We have schools that fit your family’s budget. Our F-1 tuition public schools are located all across America and offer students a diverse curriculum of academic courses, sports, music, and a large choice of extracurricular programs.

Our caring host families have a sincere desire to host an international student and participate in a cultural exchange experience. They undergo a thorough screening process, orientation and many of them have previously hosted for Quest.

Quest public schools are big and small, but they share one common goal – to offer international students an exciting study abroad program that they will treasure for a lifetime.
