We investigate numerical semigroups generated by any quadratic sequence with initial term zero and an infinite number of terms. We find an efficient algorithm for calculating the Apéry set, as well as bounds on the elements of the Apéry set. We also find bounds on the Frobenius number and genus, and the asymptotic behavior of the Frobenius number and genus. Finally, we find the embedding dimension of all such numerical semigroups.
