At San Gabriel Academy, Questing is an important part of the learning. Students continually seek to make learning applicable to their lives today and in the future. The primary purposes of Questing is to help others, to find enjoyment or personal pleasure, or to make money. Students are able to personalize their learning and, as a result, they realize that Questing is the process of seeking God’s purposes for their lives. Although pursued by some of the best schools in the country, James Xie decided to come back to SGA, where he spent a few of his elementary years. As a junior at SGA, his quest is in the development of an Adventist Debate League. Each school interested in participating will take turns hosting a debate. James found his passion in debate competitions. He has participated in the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) Public Forum and the Stanford University Invitational. He was an international semifinalist at the Harvard Invitational Public Forum 2020, and he won first place in the NSDA China Nationals Public Forum. James is one of many San Gabriel Academy students who are formulating quests that will enhance the lives of others and will hopefully uncover God’s purpose for their own lives.
