Besides the programming that Home Quest offers, families are also involved in their own activities with the community and other groups, as well as independent learning at home. The best part of Home Quest is the flexibility. Every class, workshop and trip is optional and should be attended when it fits with the student’s learning plan and the family’s other activities.
