Quest for Success (QFS) is an innovative, new, high school-level, career exploration course designed to prepare all Louisiana graduates for career and life success.

The new course will help all students to:

  • develop essential 21st century workforce skills - the ability to communicate, collaborate, and lead;
  • explore new and exciting careers and industry sectors; and
  • learn about themselves and their interests to successfully navigate high school, postsecondary education, and career pathways.

The course, designed to replace many of Louisiana’s current career preparation course, was written by leading educators from across the state as part of the Louisiana Educator Voice Fellowship, a partnership between the Louisiana Department of Education and America Achieves, a national non-profit organization. The Fellowship is part of Louisiana’s comprehensive effort to improve career readiness in the state, including its hallmark Jump Start initiative.

Quest for Success’ eight units are carefully planned to help students progress from knowing and being aware of themselves and themselves in relation to others, to leading responsibly, and leveraging these skills in identifying personal and career goals and planning for the future.  Informed by business and industry and other experts, the curriculum includes a variety of industry-aligned performance tasks that simulate the real world of work and support the development of a variety of in-demand, cross-sector, employability skills (e.g., collaboration, resource management, communication). Additionally, students will learn about high-growth, industry sectors (e.g., information technology, health care, advanced manufacturing) and related career pathways, apply a variety of technology skills, and be asked to continuously reflect on their learning.
