Our History

Founded separately in the 1950s and 1960s, the BOCES merged to become Rensselaer-Columbia-Greene BOCES in 1977. It later adopted the name Questar III in 1994, emphasizing its cooperative leadership in excellence and innovation.

For over 40 years, the organization has provided cost savings through shared services and given students of all ages and abilities access to high-quality programs. Read more about our milestones
