We are an academically selective entry, co-educational state school for highly-capable students in Years 7 to 12.  The Academy is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and is proud to uphold the values of an International Baccalaureate education.  Our focus is helping students reach their full potential.  This is achieved through the rigorous academic programme, a focus on the holistic education of every student and the outstanding commitment of our staff.

In recent years, QASMT has undergone rapid expansion with the addition of Years 7 – 9 and a comprehensive building program. We will offer a full Year 7 – 12 program in 2021. QASMT currently offers the IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) as its core curriculum in Years 11 & 12. The IB DP is a demanding pre-university course of study assessed by external examinations. It has earned a reputation for rigorous learning and assessment and, as such, gives IB DP holders access to the world's leading universities. Students in Years 7 – 10 study the IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) and a Diploma Preparation Program. QASMT is partnered with the University of Queensland who offer a range of enrichment programs to nurture our highly capable students.
