With over 30 years’ experience of International Student Programs, Centenary Heights State High School provides a first-class education to overseas students. 

Our school remains the most culturally and linguistically diverse school in the Darling Downs with over 60 first languages spoken by students.

Highly valuing cultural diversity, Centenary Heights State High School was one of the first two state high schools in Queensland to welcome international students.  We have received prestigious awards for encouraging leadership and cross-cultural awareness.

Our reputation for academic excellence and achievement sees us ranked in the top 1% of schools in Queensland.   Our partnerships with universities have resulted in direct entry to courses of students’ choices as well as scholarships for individual students.

 Our international students truly experience Australia’s famous lifestyle through our Homestay program, where students live with local families for the duration of their studies. 

By living with an Australian host family, international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.

At Centenary Heights State High School, we aim to provide every student with an opportunity to develop skills in areas that will prepare them as independent and productive citizens of the future.  We offer a broad curriculum, including EAL English for those seeking a university pathway. 

At Centenary Heights State High School, we know and understand the challenges international students face when living and studying in another country. 

We have a well-established mentor program to assist students when they first arrive in Australia, as well as language-support classes to help students achieve success in all their subjects.
