Improving Upon the Past, Preparing for the Future
At Quest Collegiate Academy - McAllen , we take proven, time-tested information and merge them with modern methods of instruction and emerging technologies allowing students to gain knowledge in the format that best suits their strengths. We believe all students are unique and deserve to have their learning styles considered in their academic journey. This allows students to take more ownership of their learning and gives them the advantage of experiencing true success in education.
Quest Collegiate Academy started in 2009 with the belief that the purpose of education is three-fold: to help children develop into responsible citizens, to help them learn to be virtuous people, and to promote a free society. Together, these three priorities lead to flourishing humans. We use a combination of the Core Knowledge framework and high-quality curriculum to pursue this goal. A view of education not often emphasized in the contemporary educational environment is that schools have an abiding responsibility to foster a sense of personal and civic virtue. The idea is that we must promote qualities that help us make sound decisions, put others first, and create value as we fulfill our potential. This, more than anything, helps students develop into productive adults. Quest Collegiate Academy takes this responsibility seriously and invests a significant amount of energy in developing a sense of virtue in our students.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Grades K-2 utilize a traditional academic program to develop competent learners that can master reading, math, social skills and making connections across the curriculum. For grades 3-12, academic progression is mastery-based, not the traditional one-size-fits-all approach. Students set daily academic learning goals using data based on knowledge and skills. Throughout the day, students work independently to complete their daily goals. During this time teachers provide support when needed and monitor students throughout the learning center.
Our learning program gives students the opportunity to take ownership of their to create personal accountability and a sense of accomplishment.
