History Quest is our annual school program in October, where students learn, meet, and engage with storytellers and historical figures. Students rotate through ten stations over the course of a few hours. In the past students have learned how to curtesy and bow like Jane Austen with the Atlanta Baroque Dancers, were charmed by Booker T. Washington, and sat with Harriet Tubman while she spoke of her life history.
