Quest is an action filled gap year program with its main campus in Zimbabwe and a second in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Our programmes expose young people to myriad experiences, including adventure based challenges and a variety of practical life skills - as well as personal guidance, career guidance and counselling. 

Enabling them to develop clearer and broader perspective in terms of the important choices that they will be making as they embark on their life journeys as adults.

 

QUEST CLASSIC IS OUR FLAGSHIP PROGRAMME

The programme goes a step further than the Quest Core programme and allows students to begin specialising in a chosen are of interest in one of three areas without compromising other the core skill acumens.

 

The specialist pathways are varied and will incorporate different aspects of the programme allowing each student to really drill down into his chosen area of interest.

The Mixed core programme is more condensed, however the young men and women still cover all areas of this unique programme before going onto either study or continue with a gap year before either going onto study further or go into work.
