Creative thinking is crucial in a continuously changing world.
QUEST, our Gifted and Talented Program at Grey Nun Academy, is designed to give qualifying students meaningful and authentic learning opportunities in a gifted and talented classroom setting.
The program presents a depth of content as an extension of traditional classroom topics, and delves into independent study and research using multiple resources, including the reading of original documents when possible.
QUEST students explore intellectual passions and express them in varied disciplines and mediums.
Questions are open-ended to challenge learners and encourage perseverance in the face of obstacles. The goal of QUEST is to stretch and stimulate divergent and evaluative thinking.
Technology is utilized to enhance learning, critical thinking skills, and the fundamentals of solid reading and writing.
Students will see that learning is a true "QUEST!"
