QACI opened its purpose-designed campus in 2007. Located in the Kelvin Grove Urban Village within 2km of inner-city Brisbane, students enjoy campus life in a multicultural village environment with shared green, business and education spaces co-located in the Queensland University of Technology creative industries precinct.

Attracting a diverse range of students with shared attributes and interests QACI learners seek a rich and integrated academic curriculum and collaborative learning experiences. Students flourish in a culture that fosters creative and critical thinking, innovation and enterprise; they approach learning as a limitless opportunity to enhance their own understanding and perceptions. Language acquisition is core to every student's emergence as a global citizen and QACI offers a diverse range of languages for beginner and proficient learners through which to develop intercultural awareness and respect.

Through the integrated IB Diploma curriculum and the range of Group 6 Arts subjects, students explore their potential in Dance, Design, Film, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts. Students learn in innovatively designed spaces with access to high-end facilities. As an Apple Distinguished School, QACI is recognised for continuously meeting criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence whilst demonstrating a consistent vision of exemplary learning environments.

To obtain the benefits of powerful learning achieved through creative and critical thinking, QACI has developed a broad range of significant arts community and business relationships. A strong relationship is nurtured with its graduates through the QACI Alumni Association which aims to provide a 'place to belong' for all alumni. Involvement by alumni as mentors, presenters, collaborators, and co-creators of school and wider community initiatives ensures that graduation is not an end point, rather the beginning of a new relationship in the lifelong learning journey.

Ranked as one of the three Queensland's Top Performing Schools beside the two other Queensland Academies campuses, QACI graduates achieve outstanding academic results and are consistently offered entry into leading universities. Credit for learning within the IB Diploma is recognised internationally and specific arrangements are available through the Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, and The University of Queensland.

QACI learners see learning as borderless and value ethics and social responsibility as qualities that open new pathways. They seek cultural experiences to enhance their understanding and perspectives and think globally through local action to enable positive change. QACI graduates contribute to society as IB learners for life and are supported and celebrated in their endeavours by QACI's growing learning community.
