  Community Day School

The Governing Board recognizes the need to provide an appropriate alternative educational program for expelled students who are prohibited from attending regular schools in the district and for certain students referred by probation or district processes. 

In order to foster positive attitudes and academic progress, Quest Academy gives students substantial individual help with their problems by collaborating with district counselors, psychologists, and other support staff, as well as with the county office of education, law enforcement, probation, and human services agency staff who work with at-risk youth.  To the extent possible, Quest Academy seeks to provide a low student-teacher ratio as well as individualized instruction and assessment.

Monrovia Unified School District, through Quest Academy Community Day School, provides an all day educational program for:

  • Expelled students
  • Probation-referred students under Welfare and Institutions Code sections 300 and 602;
  • District Administrative Hearing Panel and/or School Attendance Review Board (SARB)-referred students
  • Special Education students, only if it is determined by the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) team and the District Administrative Hearing Panel that Quest Academy Community Day School is the most appropriate placement and the least restrictive educational environment for the student. (California Education Code §48662)
