QUEST 1 & 2
Quest 1 takes the scholar projects to a whole new level. It is an intense writing course with a focus of leadership, history, and how we can make an impact in our world through studying the lives of great people.
Includes an in-depth and personalized study of leadership (among other things!). Students come face-to-face with 6 great leaders and their landmark speeches. They read about, write about, and discuss the circumstances that led them to greatness.
Quest 2 encourages the youth to find their own leaders among history and current times who exemplify the traits that great leaders exemplify—Virtue, Wisdom, Courage, Diplomacy, Inspiring Greatness in Others and Moving the Cause of Liberty.
Students write persuasive essays and do presentations on the lives of those leaders who resonated with them personally. They also work on these essential traits as they come to see themselves and each other as people who can and will influence the world for good.
