Boarding Program

Open to Canadian and International students, Quest Collegiate and Recovery Centres offers a caring yet highly structured living community. Male and female dormitories are completely independent and monitored 24 hours per day by certified Child and Youth Workers. Boarding staff provide after hours support for students, coordinate the supper hour, evening activities, outdoor events, and serve the critical role as first line responder in the event of an adverse student experience outside of school hours*.

The boarding program includes three balanced meals daily, snacks, weekly laundry service, and diverse recreational opportunities including sport, art, and music programs. Student housing includes shared accommodation, a common area lounge, student kitchen and dining room.  Sport programs include hockey, soccer, football, equestrian, general fitness, and swimming programs. Programs are scheduled based on demand throughout the year.
