Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics & Technology is an Education Queensland co-educational selective entry school 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 campus has the capacity to enrol up to 711 students in Years 10, 11 and 12.
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 The Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics & Technology, 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 other 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.

The Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics & technology is committed to facilitating happy and supportive homestay arrangements for students requiring accommodation. We will enter into discussions with families seeking homestay in order to raise their awareness of the complexities of supporting a child in homestay over the three year period of study. This process may involve communication involving Campus counseling staff, the homestay provider and the families wanting a homestay placement prior to commencement.
