PacificQuest 2016 is scheduled for July 17-22!

PacificQuest (PQ) is an exciting opportunity for gifted students! Campers will explore college-level courses and receive one hour of college credit for their work. PQ is a one-week residential summer experience where motivated students will live on-campus, learn from current PUC professors, and spend time with fellow high-achieving junior high students!

PQ 2016 seeks students who will complete grade 6, 7, or 8 by the start of the program (July 17-22).  Program fee is $500 and is all-inclusive except for the student’s travel to and from the PUC campus from home. 

Students must have scored at the 90th percentile or higher overall on standardized tests to be considered for admission.  Scores on science and math subsections must also be at the 90th percentile or higher.  All applicants must have at least two qualified (non-parent) teacher, principal, or other adult recommend him or her for this program.

Recreation and Programs
While PacificQuest is a great time for academically gifted and motivated students to learn on the college level, it’s not just sitting in a classroom! The day starts with worship and a delicious breakfast. Recreation time in the morning is a great way to exercise the body as well as the mind. Evening programs—including the always-popular quiz bowl, talent show, and pool party—make each day memorable. PacificQuest is a great opportunity for talented students to have fun and form friendships with other like-minded kids!
