The Queensland Academy for Creative Industries is one of a set of three State High Schools developing senior students on their preferred pathways. Our students study towards an International Baccalaureate Diploma, and our campus offers a preferred pathway of subjects dedicated to the creative arts – including Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, Design Technology, and Film.
By challenging current approaches to teaching and learning, the Academies enable students to learn from and with each other. The Academies – and the International Baccalaureate curriculum – promote a sense of team in which students are not competing for a finite number of top scores.
Studying an arts programme with other creative students means that the ability to nurture and develop creativity and learn from each other is enhanced both within and outside the classroom.
The Queensland Academies offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program – an internationally recognised pre-university level qualification that allows subjects to be accelerated and graduating students to study at Australian tertiary institutes as well as overseas universities.
The rigour and breadth of the IB curriculum, which includes subjects such as Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and Extended Essay (a research topic of the student’s choosing), when combined with 21st century approaches to teaching and learning, provides students with a solid foundation and enables them to adjust more readily to their university courses.
Bright students are stimulated with challenging extension and enhancement opportunities facilitated by a range of partners. They take part in camps, formals, sports and music events and are challenged by an array of extracurricular activities as part of their Creativity, Action and Service program (CAS).
