Queensland Independent College is a co-educational private primary school founded in 2009 and based at Merrimac central Gold Coast.
Students from prep to years 7 are offered a unique academic environment in which to grow and achieve their personal best. Set on 7 acres, our small class sizes give your child specialised educational attention in a relaxed, supportive environment.
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make. Every child deserves an education that encourages them towards striving to achieve their highest potential and to engage in all the essential elements crucial to becoming the most well rounded person they can be.

Our College has a number of differences from other schools.
We felt that it is in the early years of development that children are forming who they are as a person. This led to creation of a program based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment.
Our curriculum, together with teaching and learning practice, focuses on the individual student. The College bases teaching and learning strategies on a range of theories that have shown to have great results for children’s learning. Our delivery method enhances the confidence and self esteem of students to be proactive in their learning and to think creatively and learn to apply skills and knowledge to new and real life related situations.
We emphasise that our learning caters to individuals, all who have different talents and needs.
Our teachers are committed to on-going professional development, collegial planning, and to the achievement of the College’s overall philosophy and goals.
Our ethos is one of the school being its own special community. All stakeholders: families, children staff and teachers work together as a collective unit to ensure we all play a major and positive role in supporting each child to achieve their personal best.
Becoming enthusiastic and independent learners has never been more important. We believe we offer students a unique environment in which to grow and achieve their personal best and encourage you to find out more by visiting our school and speaking with us.
I look forward to meeting you and having you and your family become part of our foundation of learning.
