    What is QUEST?
    QUEST is a five-component project designed and completed by all Irvington seniors. The student starts with a Question that will lead to an exploration of an area of personal choice. Through Understand, an answer to the Question starts to develop through research, reading, writing, and hands on activities. The student and his/her consultant then create an Experience plan related to the Question. Action-oriented Experiences could include, volunteering, interviewing, training, designing and creating, etc. Through Service, the student designs and implements an activity which will allow him/her to share their new knowledge with the greater community in a way that serves a real need in the community. Finally, at the Testimony, the student will present his/her entire QUEST to a panel of staff, parents and community members.

    What is a testimony?

    A testimony is a 12 to 20 minute presentation by a student in which the student explains his/her essential question, research, experience, and service. This presentation is followed by a short question and answer segment. Then, the panel decides whether the testimony meets the standards as set forth in the scoring rubric. Finally the panel explains to the students whether or not the testimony meets the standards.
