After School – Upper School

Quest to Learn has a partnership with Hudson Sailing. Students must enroll in 9th grade, and they are part of the Sail Academy, in which they increase proficiency in math by learning basic sailing, navigation, and boat building. Through this opportunity they earn a math and PE credit. Upon successful completion, they go to First Mate: ongoing mentoring, competitive racing, college entrance preparation, homework support, summer employment assistance, and career discovery.
Quest to Learn also has a partnership with the Arthur Miller Foundation: Students work and learn side by side with teaching artists from theater and film. They write and produce original pieces which are showcased twice a year in a student led production.
