The QUEST Senior Project was developed based on senior project models from around the country, and training from the Far West Edge company.  Over the last 10 years, it has become a very unique way to challenge students to create something real and lasting, something that exists beyond the classroom.  Our students have completed literally hundreds of different projects, from developing rock-climbing skills, to running a corporate-sponsored beach cleanup, to writing a 20 minute rock opera for 15 instruments.  Many students choose charity fundraisers as projects, and over the last three years QUEST seniors have contributed over $40,000 dollars to a variety of charities and foundations. 

During the summer before their senior year, students in QUEST are tasked with developing two formal project proposals.  These proposals include a business letter, a budget, and a tentative plan to complete the product.  And they must be the student's choice.  We ask our students to consider the things about which they are passionate, whether it be an activity, or an idea.  From this passion, we put together a realistic project that explores it, and has a measurable physical product outcome.

The curriculum of the course is split in two:  Mr. Lind provides a public speaking and research writing curriculum, and the student develops his/her product curriculum alongside an adult mentor who is already an expert in the area of endeavor the student chooses.  The main idea behind the class is for students to learn a process to completing large, long-term projects, to develop their individual self-confidence through the risks inherent in the project choice and classroom curriculum, and for them to understand real-world applications and procedures.  We hope, in the end, that the graduating QUEST senior leaves us knowing how to package themselves for the real world, and understanding the relationship between passion and success.
