Designed for military families, SchoolQuest is a safe, secure online resource. SchoolQuest is organized so that you can access information that the MCEC has gathered to help you make decisions on future schools for your children. You'll be asked to answer basic questions about your family and each of your school-aged children. Based on the answers you provide, SchoolQuest will then present, at no cost, meaningful facts, resources, and transition advice to help you find out about the area schools that serve the military community you select -- we call this process a "Quest." SchoolQuest also offers an Online Library that provides resources for families in transition.
