Quest Transition Program
The Quest Transition Program is designed for students with special needs ages 18 to 21 to learn life skills through immersive educational experiences. Quest stands for Quality Universal Education and Skills Training.
The program provides instruction and hands-on learning around employment, budgeting, social skills, connecting with community agencies, and more. The program is housed in Cohasset at MDI, a non-profit local manufacturing and product assembly organization where nearly half its employees are people with disabilities.
Quest offers one full-time instructor, with additional support from the district’s nursing services, school psychology services, school social worker and a work experience coordinator. The district also partners with MDI and other outside agencies to provide employment experiences for students.
Quest's first graduate, family, and instructor, Ann Carlson.
