At Quest we engage in a variety of intellectually stimulating groups, have the opportunity to develop a new course or a present in one or more of the 35 courses offered and, along the way, meet many very interesting people. In fact, most members tell us they came to learn and then acquired a whole new set of friends.

We hope you will want to learn more about what Quest has to offer and consider joining us. If you have questions or would like to the membership process:

  • Leave a message at 212-925-6625 ext. 229, or email us at
  • Someone from the Membership Committee will be in touch to answer your questions and arrange a time for you to visit.

During your visit, you will meet with several Quest members who will take you on a tour, explain how the Quest community works and discuss your interests. You also will be able to attend one or two classes during your visit.

The cost of a Quest membership is $550 for a full year, including the summer Encores Program.
