Queensland Academy for Creative Industries

Queensland Academy for Creative Industries

Kelvin Grove QLD, Brisbane City Central & Northern Suburbs

Located in the heart of Brisbane's inner-city Kelvin Grove Urban Village, the Queensland Academies Creative Industries Campus (QACI) is a selective-entry state high school for highly capable students in Years 10 to 12.

Established in 2007, QACI exclusively offers the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme; an internationally recognised pre-university level qualification, enabling learners to work toward achievements based on merit in a non-competitive environment.

Students seek a rich and integrated academic curriculum and collaborative learning experiences. Through the IB Diploma curriculum, students flourish in a culture that fosters creative and critical thinking, innovation and enterprise.

Co-located with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), QACI learners develop university research skills and gain opportunities for real life industry experience and involvement across all industry sectors. Students enjoy the surrounding university environment with benefits such as access to QUT's library resources to extend their higher-level learning.
