For those of you who are already familiar with SchoolQuest™ (an online educational initiative of the Military Child Education Coalition®, MCEC®) easing school transitions for military families is still our mission.  For those who have not yet experienced all that our site has to offer, come and see what you’ve been missing!

At SchoolQuest™ you’ll find a multitude of resources interwoven into the various ages & stages and subjects that you’re looking for . . . whether it’s the latest in links, documents or blog entries . . . they are all bundled together based on what you want to learn more about!  Information can be saved as a “favorite” for future reference, printed out and/or easily shared online with others.

FREE to military-connected families are the following tools:

1. Find & Compare Schools – Still front and center, this is the most popular feature of our site allowing users to conduct a search based upon zip code, military installation and/or school district when looking for information on schools.

2. State Education Resources – State school requirements and resources from all fifty states where users can search for information by state or by topic.

3. My SchoolQuest Account – Password-protected and accessible from any internet connection, parents can store student educational, extra-curricular, award, volunteer and work information on each of their children.  No more digging through boxes trying to find what you need to register your children at a new location, and filling out scholarship, job and college applications becomes much easier!

Through this FREE account, students also have access to:
1. Method Test Prep and Schmoop to prepare for the ACT and/or SAT tests
2. Scholarship Finder search engine to help fund your college education
3. College Options Services for college planning resources

4. Ages and Stages – Targeted information and resources for the subjects you’re interested in based upon where your kids are now in their development.

5. Resource Library – Access to our many resources and past blog entries sorted by subject.

6. Ask Aunt Peggie - For parents and families looking for answers that they just can’t seem to find.  Peggie Watson is an expert MCEC® researcher who serves as a trusted resource for families and educators around the world.  She has answered thousands of emails over the years!
