Summer Program Opportunities at Quest

  Last week, Quest campus came alive through class discussions, lunch time chatter, library studying, and even some Adventure Pursuits! Nope, classes still haven’t started quite yet. Last weeks’ liveliness was due to Quest’s annual Summer Scholars and Renew Your Quest programs. Summer Scholars is for high school students in grades 10-12, some of which […]

Classics in the Aegean: Exporing the Aegean Coast returning home (Part 2)

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog about the first part of my trip in Turkey, found here.

Meeting Jim and Claire – my host parents, in Albania

Almost two years ago I wrote a blog named, “The Squamish Host Family Program,” where I talked about my host parents, Jim and Claire.

Dancing Bears and Quest Traditions

April is a pretty spectacular block to be at Quest. Yes, most of the students are starting to get a bit burnt out from their schoolwork. But, April feels full of life on campus. The trees start to get their leaves, there are birds all over, and the sunny days finally start to outweigh the […]

End of the Year Reflections

I currently have one week left of third year. It is weird. It’s funny to think back to the beginning… When I arrived on campus three years ago the current graduates were all second years. I remember how magical they seemed. I remember how difficult my first essay in cornerstone was (in reflection, it was a […]

Usually around this time of year, a bit of a peek-a-boo from the sun is a rare and much welcomed sighting.
