Public High School Information

Quest Academy is fortunate to host students who reside in many well-regarded and ranked public schools. Many schools have already begun enrollment.  Bear in mind that “enrollment” merely notifies the school of the intent to register, putting a family on the mailing list for all informational distribution. If you have not already done so, please enroll with the high school in your district, as we recommend all students keep their local schools as an option.

Enrollment and registration are required to attend placement testing, which for many schools is scheduled in October. Most public schools require proof of residency at time of enrollment and registration. Following are documents required for enrollment:

One of the following:

  • Current and Valid Lease Agreement (including name and phone number of landlord)
  • Real Estate Tax Bill
  • Closing Document
  • Bill of Sale
  • Warranty Deed
  • Monthly Mortgage Statement

And both of the following:

  • Utility Bill Statement – Entire first page of the bill including the coupon portion. Utilities accepted include gas, electric, water, trash collection or cable.
  • Vehicle Registration – Current year.

The following documents also are required:

  • Copy of Birth Certificate (translated if not in English)
  • Health Records or Immunizations Record
  • Illinois School Transfer Form
  • Current Academic Records (unofficial transcript)
  • Translated, notarized transcript (if coming from a foreign country)

A calendar of high school events can be found here for testing dates, events, and deadlines.
