Our Results


Aside from staying safe and having an outstanding adventure, what's most important for you when selecting a summer program for your child?

At AQ we believe that it's the lasting impact that the experience can have, and the development of skills and insights that stay with you throughout high school, college and, most importantly... life.

As a result of joining the team, our alumni told us that they:

Developed skills that they still use today
Increased self-confidence
Increased global awareness
Became more responsible
Defined future goals
Improved grades at school

We understand that parents want their children to grow to be independent and capable of making positive choices that enable them to maximize their strengths, overcome their weaknesses and reach their fullest potential. Perhaps the hope for their happiness and success is at its strongest as they reach their teen years. This is a pivotal time in their lives because these experiences and influences build the bridge from the children they once were to the adults they will become.

AQ provides students with the tools they need to build a strong foundation for this transition, and we do this by creating an environment that promotes self-discovery as well as social, emotional and intellectual growth.

Our programs may vary in destination and focus, yet all are built around the same core principles and philosophy. The result? We get results far beyond what one might expect from a typical summer program and this was highlighted to us in a recent survey of over 5000 alumni who joined us as far back as 1986.

The bottom line? AQ promises to deliver an experience that will provide opportunities to learn, grow and develop skills that have a lasting educational impact.
