What is Your Future Quest?

Students at Morton Middle School are piloting Future Quest Island, a new online adventure that promotes college and career readiness for middle school students. The project was created by the Institute for Community Inclusion at UMass Boston and is funded by the Federal Office of Special Education Programs. Future Quest is an interactive, engaging online experience that is being used as part of our Advisory curriculum.
