Welcome to Senior School

High School Principal

Welcome to the High School

It gives me great pleasure, as High School Principal of Qatar Academy-Doha, to welcome you to our new and improved Web Site. As you browse through our pages, you will find information that I hope will generate significant interest. You will learn all about the School's history and development, the mission and vision; the broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum along with details of the School’s structure, calendar of events along with the academic and extra-curricular activities that fill it.

The High School at Qatar Academy Doha provides an exciting and enriching environment. We currently have approximately 400 students from different countries in grades nine to twelve and anticipate continued growth over the coming years. Our approach to teaching and learning is guided by a respect for individual differences, by recognizing each student’s inherent capacity for growth and by creating learning situations that provide plenty of opportunity for student success. We strive for the highest academic standards by offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme along with the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. We continue to develop a world-class educational program that will challenge each student and inspire them to expand their way of thinking. Our students graduate and move on to the best colleges and universities the world has to offer.

The teachers at Qatar Academy teach to the needs of the individual student and apply a variety of methods, strategies, and instructional techniques with a full understanding of their appropriate fit into the curriculum. We strive to look at curriculum, instruction, and assessment as an integrated whole.

We believe that diversity defines us, not divides us. Faces from diverse cultures collaborate each day in teaching and learning and in co-curricular activities that promote cultural understanding and respect. Qatar Academy encourages all students to reach their fullest potential, both inside and outside the classroom, so that its graduates can become self-reliant adults able to function responsibly and successfully in a complex, rapidly changing world.

We welcome your interest in our School and look forward to maintaining communication with you, whether you’re one of our current community members, alumnus, prospective new parent or teacher.

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Cory Carson
High School Principal
