: Note that many people (friends and adults) are not
completely familiar with Questar III BOCES or our New Visions

Attend an Interest Meeting:
You are also welcome to attend our informational meetings
which are typically in early January or late February of your
Submit your Application: When you
provide us your contact information at an informational meeting,
we will send you with a link to our application. Applications
are typically due right before February break.
Arrange to Visit and/or Interview: Once
you have applied, you can arrange to visit the class for the
morning. Please contact Tammie
Wait Patiently: We typically have
about thirty highly qualified candidates, but can enroll just
fifteen students. With that in mind, it takes us some time
to have each student visit and be fairly evaluated. We typically
inform an applicants school district regarding his or her
acceptance, just after April break.
Don't Fret: Sadly, we are forced
to turn away abundantly qualified, intelligent, and fabulous
students each year, simply for lack of space. If for some
reason we did not have space to accept a student, that does
NOT mean the student did not do everything perfectly well.
