Transition is defined by the act of change.  Change of location, change of routine, change of school, in short, any kind of change qualifies as transition.  Some changes are huge and others seem more manageable. 

However, for the individual undergoing the transition, it does not happen without notice.

Change is a constant denominator in military life.  Obviously, PCSing is common and is the first thing that comes to mind.  There are many more changes, however, that appear much more subtle, but are no less impactful. 

Some Military Life Transitions:

  • Starting a new school and being the new kid.....again
  • Change of the family dynamics because one or both parents are deployed
  • Change of family interaction because the military member returns injured, or worse, doesn’t return at all

The Military Child Education Coalition knows first-hand all these changes and challenges military families face.  And we want to support, advocate for, and assist these families.  In response, the MCEC has created many programs and professional development courses to address topics that are distinctly felt by military families.

SchoolQuest was created by the MCEC to be an online resource for military families in transition.  Our goal is to be informative and helpful.  If you send a question, we will do our best to answer it in a timely manner.

Wondering what you can find on the SchoolQuest website? 

Our most popular feature is Find and Compare Schools where you can explore different schools across the nation and DODEA. 

Have a high school student?  Our College Prep Toolbox will be extremely helpful.  It is filled with College Prep information, ACT/SAT study prep, and a Scholarship Finder.

Our State Education Resources directs you to research educational topics by state.  From Assessment Testing to Virtual Schools, we have lots of information here.

Our Resource Library has articles that address your child’s Ages and Stages, College Prep, and Special Needs

And don’t forget our Blog which discusses timely topics and encourages your input.

SchoolQuest is here to assist you through transitional times.  We strive to offer quality resources and sound information as you fill your own toolbox with what works.

SchoolQuest, along with the MCEC and all of it's programs are deeply grateful for your support.  The MCEC can offer this program and many others because of the generous support of our partners and donors.  Would you please consider donating today?  Your gift will allow us to continue our support of military kids around the world.  I send you a sincere, “Thank you” for your consideration.
