International students: Welcome to Queensland Academies

Queensland Academies are a brand of 3 Department of Education co-educational selective entry schools for students in Years 10 to 12. All of our students study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) which is a rigorous learning and assessment program recognised worldwide, and as such gives IB Diploma holders access to the world's leading universities.

Our students benefit from unique partnerships with the University of Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology and Griffith University to provide transition between senior school and university for highly capable students. Students and staff engage in a strong research-based model of learning and teaching in collaboration with university and industry partners.

At Queensland Academies we believe that students will become analytical, critically thinking leaders who demonstrate an enthusiasm for entrepreneurship, lifelong learning and engage in measured risk-taking.

Each student is offered an integrated, parallel support structure to foster a sense of belonging that supports, encourages and celebrates success. Our teachers and support staff work closely with students in small groups and in one-on-one mentoring to ensure students balance the challenges of the IB Diploma with other pursuits. This is further supported by high quality communication with parents and caregivers.
