Why choose our school?

Queensland Pathways State College is a state high school that specifically supports  students that have disengaged from mainstream schools in grades 10 to 12 (students must be a minimum of 15 years of age). 

Our logo provides us with a clear focus to achieve success.  Belief – that every student can achieve; Respect – respect for self, others and the community; Unity – this is a team effort, we are unified in our approach, together we can achieve student success. Our motto, Every Student Succeeding, means we are relentless in students achieving success, both at school and with transitions out of the college.

We cater for a diverse range of student needs including young people who have:

  •  mental health concerns
  •  difficult home lives
  •  homelessness
  •  poverty
  •  social isolation
  •  youth justice involvement
  •  previous drug addictions
  •  medical conditions
  •  behaviour 
  •  exclusions or cancellations from mainstream schooling
  •  previous enrolments in multiple schools
  •  low literacy/numeracy skills
  •  years out of schooling.


Our primary focus is to assist in the development of student’s literacy and numeracy skills and address the barriers that prevent them from engaging in a mainstream school through our wellbeing program called SWEL (Social skills, Work skills, Emotional skills, Life skills).  

Students enroll with QPSC for approximately 12 months and are then supported to transition to work or further study.
