About the organization

Our Mission:

Pacific Quest cultivates Sustainable Growth in our students, in our families, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Sustainable Growth

Pacific Quest’s innovative Sustainable Growth model incorporates Whole Person Wellness, Individualized Clinical Care, Rites of Passage, Horticultural Therapy and Healthy Community Living in an outdoor, experiential environment.

These diverse and adaptable principles facilitate an empowered sense of self, create resilient and successful short-term transitions and nurture a healthy relationship with family, community, work and purpose.

Forming the foundation for our comprehensive curriculum, these principles make our program accessible to an international clientele of adolescents, young adults, and their families.

Pacific Quest believes that our ability to incorporate these principles at an organizational and community level are integral to our positive and progressive culture and overall long-term success.
