The QUEST program integrates traditional academics – English, science, history, and math – with the Hackettstown High School Life Skills curriculum. Students are actively involved in their education as they develop into contributing members of society. Over the course of four years, students will learn the tools to live self-sufficiently. The goal of QUEST is to effectively teach students how to live and work independently. This goal is accomplished through hands-on learning experiences in real life settings. Through Community Based Instruction, students will develop everyday life skills from food preparation to banking. The Structured Learning Program prepares the students for the expectations of the workplace. Upon completion of the program, students will feel confident completing daily tasks at home and at work autonomously.
