Quest Project

The Quest Project is a pre-college program designed to educate and motivate Milwaukee area middle and high school students, and their parents. Our aim is to provide information, support and encouragement so they successfully complete high school, and are prepared to enter college and successfully complete a college degree.

During the academic year the program offers workshops on a wide variety of subjects from Financial Aid and College Search to Self Esteem, Resume Writing, and Learning Strategies. Additionally, academic support is offered through tutoring.

The Quest Project is funded by the UW-System.


Students must have attended the designated summer camp at one of the UW-System partner campuses. They may continue in Quest until they graduate from high school.

How to Register

The Quest Project receives contact information from the partner campuses, and then mails registration materials to the student.

Policies and Fees

There are no fees for participation in the Quest Project.
